Advocacy & Policy

Village Movement California advocates with diverse audiences including local and state policymakers to ensure that Californians have and know their options for aging support.

Master Plan for Aging

Governor Newsom has called for a Master Plan for Aging to serve as a blueprint for strategies and partnerships that will promote healthy aging and prepare the state for the coming demographic changes. The timeline for a completed plan is October 2020.

A Stakeholder Advisory Committee will provide substantial input into the plan’s components and data metrics. Two thirds of the members are familiar with the Village Movement.

The California Collaborative for Long Term Services and Supports includes expansion of the Village Model in its recommendations for the Master Plan.


Sign on to the Pledge of Support and call on the state to support the expansion of the Village Model so that more Californians have access to our life affirming model of social change.
