Missouri's Silver Haired Legislature was founded in 1973, the first such organization in the nation. It is composed of 15 volunteers from each of the 10 statewide Area Agencies on Aging. The 150, elected by their peers, identify and advocate for issues critical to older Missourians. More information is available by emailing ldaustin1@charter.net.
