AARP Kentucky Virtual Lobby Week 2022

AARP Kentucky Virtual 2022 Lobby Week

Kentucky’s 2022 General Assembly is underway, and the pandemic is again limiting Kentuckians' in-person access to their lawmakers. AARP volunteers and activists will be using virtual tools to advocate on behalf of Kentuckians 50-plus. You can help by monitoring the 60-day session and engaging your lawmakers remotely in support of AARP Kentucky’s legislative priorities. These include: lowering prescription drug prices, eliminating health care disparities, financial security in retirement, supporting unpaid family caregivers, increasing independent living options, and affordable high-speed internet access for all Kentuckians.

  • AARP Kentucky offers two “How To” grassroots training sessions (January 25 or January 27) in advance to prepare volunteers, activists and chapter members on priority legislative issues, scheduling meetings with lawmakers, providing issue talking points, and how to connect with lawmakers.
  • Register now for Lobby Week Advocacy and Grassroots Trainings, HERE.
  • Volunteers will receive an email invitation with their completed registrations with ZOOM training link, details and planning tools.   
  • RSVP to the Kentucky State Office by phone 1-877-926-8700 -or- RSVP online: https://aarp.cventevents.com/kylobbyweek22
  • Download and share a "Save the Date" invitation (PDF) for you and your friends, HERE.
  • Find and connect with to your legislators, HERE.

We need your help again to connect with lawmakers during the 2022 General Assembly and supporting the needs of Kentuckians 50-plus. Watch your email for more updates and details.
