Will Governor-elect Newsom #StandWithSeniors?

With the senior population increasing by nearly 90 percent, or four million people by 2030, California is heading for a crisis in caring for our older population. Governor-elect Gavin Newsom committed to developing a Master Plan for Aging on the campaign trail. We need your help to ensure he turns his promise into a reality so all Californians can age safely and with dignity.

1 out of 5 older adults in California lives in poverty and that number will rapidly increase in the near future. Those seniors won’t be able to afford healthcare, food or housing, with many slipping into homelessness.

West Health and The SCAN Foundation launched We Stand With Seniors… Will You? to shine a light on the growing challenges faced by California seniors and their families and the cost to the state if these issues are not addressed.

The We Stand With Seniors nonpartisan, education and awareness campaign is designed to engage seniors, advocates and policymakers throughout the state to discuss and address these issues. Learn more about the campaign and how you can #StandWithSeniors.
