Senior Advocacy Network (SAN)

Speaking Out for Seniors

The Senior Advocacy Network is a network of individuals and organizations that are committed to following public policy issues which affect older adults, and speaking out on behalf of the needs of older persons.

Who should be a part of the Senior Advocacy Network?

Any citizen or organization interested in policy and advocacy issues affecting seniors in Michigan is invited to join. There is no cost to participate, and membership lists will not be shared or sold to any other organization. The only expectation is that members be active in advocating on behalf of older persons.
