Older Michiganians Day

Annual Rally Gives Michigan Seniors a Voice

Decisions made in Lansing have a direct and far-reaching impact on the quality of life for seniors in Michigan. Each year, the Area Agency on Aging 1-B participates in the Older Michiganian’s Day Rally held on the lawn of the Capitol Building. This very important annual advocacy event helps give seniors a voice and help legislators understand both the needs and the voting power of seniors.

Older Michiganians Day gives seniors and advocates a chance to:

  • Participate in a rally on the East Lawn
  • Hear from important keynote speakers
  • Meet with state legislators
  • See the presentation of Michigan Community Service Awards
  • See the presentation of the Senior Citizen of the Year Award

Important platforms for legislative action:

  • Eliminating wait lists
  • Preventing elder abuse
  • Improving accessibility for seniors within their homes and communities
  • Supporting caregivers
