ON THE MOVE: AARP moves state office from Santa Fe to Albuquerque

AARP unveiled its Albuquerque office on June 20.

On June 20, AARP, formerly American Association of Retired Persons, moved its state office from Santa Fe to Albuquerque.

The office is at 4400 Masthead St. NE, Suite 120.

Joseph P. Roybal-Sanchez, AARP state director, joined other state and local dignitaries for the ribbon cutting. AARP is a Chamber Connections Level member.

Roybal-Sanchez said the new office will have more meeting space, and the location is more central.

“The aspect that most appealed and inspired me to join the AARP team was the notion of being part of an organization that works tirelessly to ensure older Americas can live their best lives. I believe that everyone should have a fair shot of being able to age with dignity and independence,” Roybal-Sanchez said. “I have a strong interest in advocating for vulnerable populations — mainly the young and old, health-policy affairs, health equity and social justice issues. I am also a champion for veteran and behavioral health matters.”

AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that advocates for Americans over age 50.

The organization advocates for older Americans on a number of federal health and fiscal issues such as Medicare and Social Security, and at the state and local level for better community healthcare services and lower utility rates.
