One of Wisconsin’s great strengths is its many dedicated, committed advocacy groups on behalf of those whose voices often get lost in the political noise.
Those voices belong to some of our most vulnerable fellow citizens -- children, people with disabilities, victims of abuse and seniors.
The Coalition of Wisconsin Aging Groups has been speaking out for seniors for 40 years, and the organization is celebrating that anniversary this weekend.
Despite growing political antipathy toward citizens without money or power, Wisconsin is recognized as a great state for seniors and the Coalition of Wisconsin Aging Groups has played a large role in making it so. Under the leadership of President Nino Amato and a great board, CWAG has offered programs like the Elder Law Center, educational resources and lobbying on behalf of all seniors citizens in Wisconsin.
Saturday’s event will honor the late champion of seniors and people with disabilities Ed Garvey, which we love. You can find registration information on line at cwagwisconsin.org.
