Alliance for Retired Americans - Get Involved


The Alliance for Retired Americans (ARA), which is part of the AFL-CIO labor federation, is organizing in Connecticut. The New Haven Peoples Center is now a chapter of ARA.

The Alliance for Retired Americans is very active to protect and expand Social Security and Medicare, achieve health care for all, and many other issues that affect retired workers such as veterans rights, voting rights and the right to organize a union.

The Connecticut ARA is holding a meeting of its outreach committee:

DATE: Monday, July 27

TIME: 1:00 pm

PLACE: New Haven Peoples Center
37 Howe St, New Haven CT 06511
(203) 624-8664

It would be great to have retired New Haven workers from different unions like IAM 609, Locals 34 and 35 at Yale, AFSCME at SCSU, Teacher Retirees, etc. Seniors who are not union members are equally welcome.

Please come, find out more, and give your ideas on building a strong and united movement that can strengthen labor's role, involve seniors, and help bring change.
