Alice Bennett works with AARP Georgia volunteers, elected officials, faith-based and nonprofit leaders, and government officers to execute the Age-Friendly Augusta action plan. One of her primary objectives is to increase AARP’s presence, relevance and impact in the Augusta and Savannah communities.
As a part of her role, Bennett also leads caregiving education for AARP Georgia. This initiative supports family caregivers through advocacy, programs, and community engagement. These resources enable them to find and secure care in a preferred setting that is most often in the home.
Prior to joining AARP, Bennett served as the North Carolina NAACP Public Policy and Legal Redress Coordinator. She also worked as a community organizer for 10 years with Helping Empower Local People (HELP), and trained community leaders to develop and execute action plans. Bennett holds a jurist doctor degree from North Carolina Central University School of Law.
