CWLC Forum: Aging, Women, and Poverty In California (2016)

On June 3, 2016, the California Women’s Law Center (CWLC) partnered with the California Commission on Aging and the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls to co-host the “Aging, Women and Poverty in California” forum.  The Forum focused on the priorities and perspectives that community and policy leaders need to address as our population ages, including higher rates of poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, abuse, fraud, lack of medication, and loneliness. With 34,000 Californians turning 65 each month, the Golden State needs to prepare for a dramatic change in the priorities of its citizens, and in particular women.
