The Gary Mary West Foundation and The SCAN Foundation launched the nonpartisan, public awareness and education campaign We Stand With Seniors… Will You? in 2018 to highlight the need for a statewide, comprehensive Master Plan for Aging to address the growing challenges faced by California older adults, their families and caregivers. Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order calling for the development of a Master Plan for Aging by October 1, 2020.
Since then, the California Health & Human Services Agency launched the Stakeholder Advisory Committee to inform the Master Plan’s development and created the Together We EngAGE initiative to provide all Californians the opportunity to share their ideas and suggestions for how state government, local communities, private organizations and philanthropy can build an age-friendly California.
