Elders in Action presents


Do you want to have your voice heard? Do you want to be more involved with your city, county and state government - and your community?

Civics 101 is for you!

We invite you to take part in our 5-session training series
to learn about the structure and operation of various levels
of government, engage with elected officials, and advocate
for causes you believe in.

In this series, we will:

  • Learn the basic elements of our local political system
  • Have personal conversations with elected officials
  • Visit city and county offices and the Oregon State Capitol
  • Become advocates for older adults and the issues you care about
