The Age Wave, a candidates forum on Washington’s aging readiness, comes Oct. 4 to the Auburn Community and Event Center, on the Les Gove Park campus, 910 Ninth St. SE.
The public is invited to the free event and hear the perspectives of state legislative candidates from five districts, including locally the 30th, 31st, 33rd and 47th. The forum is from 10 a.m. to noon.
The forum will include a presentation about how Washington can take the lead to create age friendly communities, strengthen the long-term support system, promote economic security in retirement and increase protections against abuse, neglect and exploitation.
Legislators and candidates will comment and take questions from the audience.
Doors open at 9:45 a.m. Seating is limited and RSVPs are encouraged but not required. RSVP online, by email at email@example.com, or by phone at 206-684-0652
The City of Auburn, Seattle-King County Area Agency on Aging Advisory Council on Aging & Disability Services; AARP; Washington Association of Area Agencies on Aging; LeadingAge Washington; Washington State Senior Citizens’ Lobby; King County; United Way; and the City of Seattle host the forum.
