Older Michiganian's Day (OMD) is an annual rally that takes place on the East Lawn of the Capitol Building in Lansing. This event brings together hundreds of seniors, aging service providers and senior advocates with their legislators and key state officials.
Interested individuals are invited to join this event to show their support for policies that support older adults. This free event provides the opportunity to speak with a unified voice to the Legislature
expressing the concerns, challenges, and opportunities for older adults by the experts, older adults themselves and aging service providers.
Older Michiganians Day is planned by a group of organizations committed to advocating on behalf of the needs and interests of older adults across the state of Michigan. The steering committee is responsible for planning the annual event in Lansing, producing the advocacy platform which outlines legislative priorities, and developing an annual report card that states the achievements of the Governor and the Legislature in accomplishing recommended actions.
