Senior Tar Heel Legislature

The purpose of the Senior Tar Heel Legislature (STHL) is to advise and inform the NC General Assembly regarding issues impacting the lives of persons aged 60 and over in NC. The delegates and alternates of the STHL work to advocate for seniors to improve the quality of life. STHL priorities are established annually and are used to advocate throughout our counties and before the North Carolina General Assembly.

​Senior Tar Heels attend an orientation training, regional meetings and state Tar Heel meetings, become knowledgeable about needs of older adults in their respective counties, and advocate with local and state public officials on behalf of older adults.
