OASIS (Our Aging Seniors in Society) is NGP’s campaign to help elevate the voices of our elders. There is so much history in our seniors and we want to make sure their stories are heard and celebrated. In this process we strive to build a relationship within the senior community centers, collect stories, register seniors to vote, and provide information on every upcoming election.
Some of our goals include, but are not limited to:
Recognize and elevate our seniors
Identify elder needs within the community, provide direct assistance, seek partners to strengthen the resources available
Register elders to vote
Advocate for their right to participate in every election
Fight to create policies that are beneficial as they age gracefully in society
Merge the generational gap between elders, head of household, young adults, and children
Why this is important to US:
The senior demographic is falling through the cracks, and it is estimated that between 2000 and 2030, Georgia’s population of people aged 65+ will increase by 143%. Join us as we envision Georgian’s Aging Better Together.
