The Senior Rally Day attracted upwards of 500 plus seniors and advocates from around the state. Presented by the Seniors Count Coalition, this year’s rally occurred on May 11 at the State Capitol. California Senior Leaders Alliance was thrilled to participate. As a part of the Seniors Count Coalition, we are dedicated to advocating for our elders to ensure their needs are met by the Legislature on every level. Senior Rally Day acts as a catalyst to bring together our aging community and its advocates to propel our state Legislature to establish and maintain our seniors’ rights.
