On January 24, 2018, AARP New York, the Asian American Federation, the Hispanic Federation, the NAACP and the Urban League released a series of policy briefs highlighting disparities in health, economic security, and livability in English, Spanish, and Chinese.

AARP and our partner groups have shed a light on the disparities in these communities and have made key recommendations. Few, if any, have led to the necessary policy change to address them; nor have they focused on New York’s 50-plus population.
