Illinois Policy Academy
October 15, 2021
Please join us for this unique opportunity to become an ambassador for aging equity in Illinois.
Illinois Aging Together is a statewide campaign to advance aging equity. To move the state in this direction, we have developed the Illinois Aging Together Policy Academy to provide education and training to advocates to engage in this campaign.
By exploring state-wide trends, policies, and programs in aging in Illinois through the lens of social and health equity, future ambassadors for aging equity will learn how to advocate for policies and programs that help all Illinoisans reach their full potential throughout their life journeys. Also, future ambassadors will receive training in advocacy skills to prepare for engaging with officials. Illinois Aging Together Policy Ambassadors will contribute to this campaign by advocating for passage of legislation for a strategic action plan on aging and other aging issues of important to them.
