PSARA Holds Successful Legislative Conference November 21
Featuring a keynote speech by State Senate Majority Leader Sharon Nelson, PSARA held its annual Legislative Conference on November 21.
Nelson said that since we have broken the Republican stranglehold on the State Senate, the legislature would “look at what we can do for seniors and their families”.
May Day 2017!
PSARA took part in the rally on March 13 when Republican Congressman Dave Reichert was a keynote speaker at the Conference for Washington Council on International Trade.
Reichert, the empty suit, has refused to hold any public events for his constituents to ask questions and make their voice heard about protecting health care for thousands of Washingtonians. We joined advocates for a rally outside the Washington Trade Conference on Monday morning to demand that Dave Reichert stand up for his constituents and vote NO on all efforts to repeal the benefits of the ACA, oppose the raid on the Medicare Trust Fund to provide tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, and block grant Medicaid!
PSARA members took part in Senior Lobby Day in Olympia on Feb. 23. Sixty PSARA members joined in and attended meetings with their State Representatives and Senators, pressing for support of our legislative agenda.

Tuesday, April 19 PSARA members and members of several other organizations protested at Zoomcare’s newest Seattle-area clinic in Ballard.
ZoomCare, a new Oregon for-profit clinic network, plans to expand to 16 clinics in King County. They refuse to accept Medicare and Medicaid patients. Their business model is to serve younger and healthier people, putting more pressure on other providers. The next picket will be at the Fremont clinic on Monday, July 11. Join us!
Civic Engagement: It’s Our Middle Name
We’ve been through wars and depressions, presidents decent and lousy, political defeats and victories. We love our country, and we believe the best way to show it is to raise hell about its shortcomings.
Our operating principle was expressed by a wise rabbi nearly two millennia ago: “You are not required to finish the work, but neither are you at liberty to abstain from it.”
We are Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action. Civic engagement is our birthright and our middle name. If it’s yours as well, come join us. We need you.
