Members often ask- why are we involved in politics? Because we need to be engaged on the local, county, state, and federal level. Most of the work is centered on the state house and state senate. Our day-to-day lives are impacted by what they decide, fund, and guide with public policy. We have helped shape new legislation in the last few years that have improved our members' lives.
For example, a broad coalition of groups worked together to increase funding for nursing homes. The effect was an increase in wages and benefits for our members.
