Social Security works for all Americans - A Part of the Saving Our Democracy

Hi, Changemakers! Did you know that Social Security isn't just for retirees? It's for everyone - even if you're under 30! Social Security Works is on a mission to fight for our generation's future by protecting and expanding essential programs like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. But that's not all – they're also working to lower skyrocketing drug prices and ensure economic justice for everyone because we all deserve to live with dignity.

Join forces with the DA Global Seniors Caucus, Pro DA, and the Global Disability Caucus to explore how we can create a better world for ourselves and future generations. Let's create a future where Democrats prevail and expand programs that strengthen our healthcare and our plans for the future and create a more equitable society.

Our event isn't just for seniors and the disabled—it's for all of us. Let's come together to learn why Social Security is vital for all Americans, regardless of age. Together, we can raise awareness and ensure our voices are heard. See you there!
