IN THE SPOTLIGHT:
RESOURCE OF THE WEEK
Justice in Aging is a national non-profit legal advocacy organization that fights senior poverty through law.
Formerly the National Senior Citizens Law Center, since 1972 they have worked for access to affordable health care and economic security for older adults with limited resources, focusing especially on populations that have traditionally lacked legal protection such as women, people of color, LGBT individuals, and people with limited English proficiency.
Through targeted advocacy, litigation, and the trainings and resources they provide to local advocates, they ensure access to the social safety net programs that poor seniors depend on, including Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
They are also part of the National Legal Resource Center (NLRC) and coordinate with other NLRC partners to provide case consultations and training to the aging network on legal needs facing older adults.
