Get Involved

There are numerous ways individuals and organizations can be involved with the implementation of Age-Friendly DC.


Age-Friendly DC Block-by-Block Walk

What do you see when you walk around your neighborhood? What about other parts of the city where you may shop, visit friends or go to medical appointments?

During the March 20 - April 15 Age-Friendly Block-by-Block Walk, hundreds of volunteers will take to the streets of DC to identify neighborhood assets and issues needing attention all through the lens of DC residents 60 and older. When the data from all the Walk areas is combined, it will help the city improve policy and practice to make daily life better for everyone.
