April 3: Planning Ahead: Ensuring Retirement Security for All Coloradans

In Colorado and the United States there is an understanding that our senior citizens should be able to live an economically secure lifestyle. Indeed, federal programs such as Social Security and Medicare serve as the cornerstones of this accepted social contract. Unfortunately, however, the financial viability of these programs has grown in doubt in recent years. In the absence of  substantive federal action to help prepare Americans for retirement, a number of states have begun implementing their own solutions.

Join us on Monday to learn about the proposals before the Colorado State Legislature this year aimed at helping our senior citizens retire in comfort. Our panel will include:

  • Representative Janet Buckner (D-Aurora)
  • Representative Brittany Pettersen (D-Lakewood)
  • Cate Blackford, Director of Outreach and Donor Development for The Bell Policy Center
  • Kelli Fritts, Associate State Director and Advocacy Representative for AARP Colorado

Where: Basement of First Baptist Church of Denver; 1373 Grant Street, Denver, CO 80203 
When: April 3, 2017 12:00PM-1:15PM
