Breakthrough News for Older Persons!

Dear GAA Friend,

The countries of Latin American and the Caribbean nations may well be the champions of older persons' rights at the United Nations this fall. It is possible that diplomats may begin work during this UN Session on a binding human rights instrument on aging if proponents can secure sufficient votes among their colleagues.

What can you do to help?  Contact the National Aging Authority in your country to urge him or her to join the delegations supporting this initiative at the United Nations.  GAA will keep you informed with breaking news in the days and weeks ahead.

Today older people everywhere can have tangible hope for a human rights treaty on older people's rights across the globe.  Please write to tell Global Action on Aging readers about your intervention!

Thanks, Susanne Paul for Global Action on Aging
