Advocacy and Engagement

AAA Advocacy and Engagement

The Boulder County Area Agency on Aging (BCAAA) provides leadership and advocacy on issues affecting older adults and family and informal caregivers. As a part of the Federal Aging Network, we are mandated by the Older Americans Act to advocate for those we serve. While we are mandated to advocate, our staff and network of partners, volunteers, and allies are passionate supporters of policies and legislation that support healthy aging. The BCAAA is also guided by the Board of County Commissioners Legislative Priorities and assisted by Policy & Legislative Affairs and Legislative Affairs staff.

For decades, the BCAAA has been collecting and analyzing data about the strengths and needs of older adults in Boulder County. See our data here. Understanding the challenges and opportunities of the county’s aging population is critical for elected officials, city leadership, service providers, non-profits, faith communities, and neighborhoods alike, if we are to successfully create communities in which we can all age well. We share this data with lawmakers, decision makers, partner agencies, businesses, academics, and others to help advocate for older adults and their family and informal caregivers through the following channels:
