The organization's purpose is to educate and mobilize the general public with particular concern to the senior citizen population. We educate and encourage the participation in the legislative process. Through opinion polls, questionaires and surveys we are able to address issues of most importance. With the use of legislative updates, petitions, cards, letter writing, etc., we are able to facilitate the influence of senior citizens on issues that impact their daily lives.

This organization uses scare tactics and deceptive mailings to frighten, bully and shame older Americans into contributing to the organization. My mother-in-law receives multiple mailings from one of the four interest area groups daily. She has made donations out of pure fear and does not know where to turn for answers when she can't understand the information sent. While claiming to educate older voters, this organization only propagates its own political agenda and does not provide older Americans with data or balanced information to help them become more educated on issues.

My mother has been receiving daily multiple mailings from this organization, scaring her into donating to them. She has sent a variety of organizations, including this one, over $8,000 just in the past two months. She has repeatedly asked that they stop mailing requests for money to her, to no avail. She has just sent another request, with a copy to the Ohio Attorney General, to stop the mailings. What else can I do to get this organization and its many projects off her back?
