We welcome you to join us in this important mission!
The Florida Alliance for Retired Americans was established in 1963 originally called FSCSC.
As each generation ages,New challenges must be confronted and new opportunities must be created in order for organizations to be responsible and continue to grow. The Alliance and the Florida Alliance for Retired Americans is at this kind of crossroads, as the baby boomer generation begins to retire and the labor movement faces this wave of retirements over the coming decade. We pledge our full support to strengthen the Alliance to help meet these challenges. We will work with its leadership and activist to organize and implement programs that will support the revitalization of the senior movement while addressing the needs of older and retired workers in the next century.
FLARA's objectives and principles are:
• To promote the interestof senior citizens in the United States in harmony with the national interest.
• To encourage greater opportunities for voluntary civic service for senior citizens.
• To act as a clearinghouse for the exchange of information, ideas and experiences among affiliated members and groups.
• To engage in fact finding and analysis of issues, to publish the results of such studies, to provide a responsible and articulate voice for senior citizens, and to conduct other types of public relations activities.
• To take such other action as is consistent with the interest and needs of senior citizens.
