This workshop will introduce the National Elder Economic Security Initiative Program (the Initiative). The Initiative offers a concrete framework and tools to promote the economic well-being of elders through a combination of coalition building, research, education, advocacy and media outreach. Workshop participants will learn how the Initiative and its guiding tool, the Elder Economic Security Standard Index, are being applied at the national, state and community levels to inform AAA policies and programming.
