Join We Stand With Seniors for a lunch briefing on Thursday, August 1, 2019, focused on California’s Master Plan for Aging: Understanding Voters’ Views and the Policy Implications. Findings will be shared from a new statewide voter survey that identifies voters’ priorities and perspectives on the state’s accountability for plan implementation and related investments. A panel discussion will follow, exploring the polling and related policy implications.

On June 10, 2019, California Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-14-19, calling for a Master Plan for Aging (Master Plan) to serve as a blueprint for state and local government, the private sector, and philanthropy to implement strategies and partnerships to prepare the state for the coming demographic changes. Policymakers have long expressed a desire to see a Master Plan address what matters to older adults, people with disabilities, and their families to ensure that all Californians can age with dignity and independence.
