AARP will host a community conversation 9:30 a.m.Thursday at the North End Senior Center in Hartford.

The event is a continuation of a national effort launched by AARP in 2012 called “You’ve Earned a Say,” which engaged more than 10 million Americans to share their opinions on Medicare and Social Security.

At Thursday’s event residents will have an opportunity to learn more about specific proposals being discussed in Washington, share their ideas and have a say about the future of programs that matter to them and their families.

The North End Senior Center is located at 20 Coventry Street in Hartford.

RSVP by calling 1-877-926-8300 or at
