Every May the Administration for Community Living (ACL) leads the national observance of Older Americans Month.

Theme

This year's theme is "Make Your Mark." The theme was selected to encourage and celebrate the countless contributions that older adults make in their communities. "Their time, experience and talents benefit family, peers and neighbors every day," states the ACL. "This year’s theme highlights the difference everyone can make – in the lives of older adults, in support of caregivers, and to strengthen communities."

Resources

The ACL website continues to be updated with artwork, activity suggestions and other materials to use online and at special events.

Among the resources available are the 2020 logo, in various formats to download for use online and in print, and four posters that may be reproduced freely, electronically and in print. You also can access a sample article, a community proclamation template and social media graphics.
