AARP Collaborates with the 2021 GPNP Summit

Posted on 11/19/21


AARP is proud to collaborate with the biennial Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP) Summit, an event focused on healing, connecting, and co-creating justice-focused solutions to southwestern Pennsylvania’s toughest challenges.

The 2021 GPNP Summit took place virtually on October 13-15, 2021 and connected more than 700 attendees from southwestern PA with pertinent resources; worked to identify and develop cross-sectoral strategies for nonprofit organizations, local businesses, and the public sector; and empowered attendees to collaborate, advocate, and act to make southwestern PA a better place.

AARP participated in the Summit’s Advocacy Day on Thursday, October 14, with AARP Senior Legislative Representative Samar Jha joining a panel discussion on affordable housing. The discussion focused on policy and practice changes needed to preserve housing stability among the region’s 50+ population as well as ways to increase affordable housing, while sharing insights on key models for success including increasing allowances for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and more. Volunteers from AARP’s Western PA Advocacy Team also shared information about AARP’s local work and participated in conversations with other attendees and regional advocates.
