The Senior Agenda Coalition is an independent and diverse coalition of agency and individual members. Our mission is to mobilize people and implement an agenda that improves the quality of life of older Rhode Islanders. We accomplish this through community organizing, public education and legislative action.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we not been idle at The Senior Agenda Coalition. Three e-newsletters have been published, and our Five-Year strategic plan is summarized in our publications section.
We will continue to reach out to you regularly, and hope that you are looking ahead to brighter days.
