I’m a CARA member because it gets results. CARA is a statewide organization advocating and educating seniors on public policy issues that impact us as seniors. It also reaches beyond its own membership to win social and economic justice and a better future for our communities and future generations. It’s effective in what it does and wins.

Thank you Jonathan
Linda Perez

I found CARA thanks to Jenni! and I have been involved ever since. Don't ask me how long because my memory is fading away. I never heard from my union about CARA until I asked them and they said "yes, we are part of CARA." Working with CARA was the continuation of my involvement in politics and the opportunity to continue working for our seniors community. We must stay active and fighting for our rights and the future of our families. We represent thousands of seniors, and I invite you to be part of this wonderful organization!
*Mary Rose Ortega
