Issues affecting seniors

Over the next 15 years, the number of Illinoisans 65 and older will increase by nearly 60%. As our state ages, and the power of the senior vote grows, candidates will increasingly be called upon to answer to the issues that matter to seniors:

• Pensions and economic security.
• Dignity and independence in long term care.
• Fully funded quality of life services and supports, and the ability to “age in place”.

Together, the voice of seniors will be heard in 2018!

Join us as we raise the issues that most concern seniors in Champaign County with candidates for the State Legislature, in a forum organized by seniors, for seniors.
