Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans
The mission of the Alliance for Retired Americans is to ensure social and economic justice and full civil rights for all citizens so that they may enjoy lives of dignity, personal and family fulfillment and security. The Alliance believes that all older and retired persons have a responsibility to strive to create a society that incorporates these goals and rights and that retirement provides them with opportunities to pursue new and expanded activities with their unions, civic organizations and their communities.
A primary objective of the Arizona Alliance is to enroll and mobilize retired union members and other senior and community activists into a nationwide grassroots movement advocating a progressive political and social agenda-one that respects work and strengthens families. The long-term goal of the Arizona Alliance is to become the voice for all older Arizonans. By engaging in important political battles to protect and preserve programs vital to the health and economic security of older Americans, the Arizona Alliance will gain recognition as the country’s leading progressive grassroots senior organization.
