Gabriela Sandoval testifies at Ca State Assembly committee on senior poverty

Insight Center's own Gabriela Sandoval, Director of Research and Chief Economic Security Officer, testified on March 17 before a joint-committee hearing titled Who Can Afford to Get Old? Senior Poverty in the Golden State before members of the California State Assembly.

Gabriela provided a powerful personal look at the reality of what it takes to make ends meet in California and how we need to support seniors by providing funding to bring SSI/SSP recipients above the FPL, fund a COLA, and make SSI/SSP recipients eligible for food assistance.
