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.
