Advocacy

Supporting Seniors through Advocacy 

Mid-East Area Agency on Aging (MEAAA) advocates to advance policies that effectively address the needs of aging Missourians who wish to remain as independent as possible throughout the journey of aging.

MEAAA’s advocacy efforts include coordinating the Silver Haired Legislators (SHL).  Our SHL is one of ten delegations across Missouri and is made up of dedicated volunteers, aged 60 and greater, who advocate on behalf of older Missourians.  Thanks to their hard work, many critical issues receive attention at the local and state level. 

MEAAA also provides voter education and assistance to help ensure all are able to exercise their right to vote, should they so wish. 

For more information about our advocacy efforts, including the Silver Haired Legislature, please contact us at 636-207-0847 or jkeith@mid-eastaaa.org.
