Metro Seniors in Action: A Case Study of a Citywide Senior Organization.
Reitzes, Donald C.; Reitzes, Dietrich C.
Gerontologist, v31 n2 p256-62 Apr 1991
Studied Metro Seniors in Action, a Chicago coalition of 77 senior groups. Findings suggest that seniors are able to establish citywide networks but need continuous involvement of local groups, to create broad coalition with democratic governance but require professional staff, and to advocate interests of seniors but must continue to use confrontation and lobbying strategies to maintain influence.
