According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Americans age 65 or older is projected to grow by almost 50 percent from 2016 to 2030. An average American child who is 10 years old today has a 50% chance of living to 100 or beyond. Many Oregon communities are at the front edge of this demographic shift. How can our communities prepare for the future?

Join AARP Oregon to hear from local and national leaders who are involved in age-friendly efforts. Learn about strategies for making communities more livable for people of all ages, abilities, races and incomes.
