This event is hosted by AARP California as part of Affordable Housing Month 2021.
In 2020, AARP California engaged practitioners and subject matter experts to better understand the impediments and solutions to California’s housing crisis, as well as where AARP can position its resources and support to effect change. The research culminated in The AARP CA Listening Report: Rebuilding the Social Compact on Housing for All Californians.
The experts AARP California engaged through the research process laid out a unique challenge and an opportunity particular to AARP – rebuild the “social compact” between the young and the old to advance affordable and supportive housing in California. The social compact refers to an implicit agreement between generations to share resources and to support one another across phases of life. While there is a need for housing for people of all ages, the advocates and experts AARP spoke to believe there is a significant breakdown in the “compact” as it relates to older adults.
On Tuesday, May 11 @ 2 p.m. PT join AARP California, Associate State Director, Rafi Nazarians for a brief presentation on the newly released AARP California housing report, followed by an open discussion.
