Make Your Voice Heard: Contact Your Representative on Behalf of Longevity Science

In our journey to advance the longevity industry, grassroots efforts like ours hold immense potential to create change. To truly impact the future longevity science and human health, we need a committed community advocating constantly for the industry. To that end, we must ensure that our voices are heard by the people who can most effect change – our policymakers.

Policymakers are the key to the longevity science effort. They set the rules, drive the legislation, and provide the regulatory environment in which the longevity industry operates. If we can engage them, inspire them, and show them the extraordinary potential of geroscience and the study of longevity, we can cultivate allies in the highest offices of our nation. And it’s not just about the longevity industry – it’s about our mission of enhancing health and extending lives.

The Alliance for Longevity Initiatives (A4LI) urges you to reach out to your local congressperson and make a case for them to join the Longevity Science Caucus. Our elected representatives are there to serve us, to protect our interests, and to help us live healthier, longer lives. Let’s remind them of that!

To make this task as straightforward as possible, we’ve prepared a letter template below that you can use to contact your congressperson. Feel free to customize it, add your personal touches, and make it your own. Your words can be a powerful tool for change. When you’re ready to send your message, reach out to A4LI at [email protected]. We’re here to support you, provide the contact information for your congressional office, and help you make a difference.

Together, we can transform the future of health and longevity. Let’s make our voices heard, let’s advocate for change, and let’s inform our policymakers about the incredible promise of the longevity industry. To find your Congressperson so you can send this letter or email to, please visit


Subject: Request to Support Geroscience Research and Longevity Initiatives

Dear [Congressperson’s Name],

I hope this message finds you well. My name is [your name] and I am a resident of [your city or Congressional District], part of your constituency. [Include a personal note here about why longevity science is important to you.] I am reaching out to discuss the field of geroscience and longevity science biomedical research and development. Support for this industry has the potential to revolutionize the future of our healthcare system and requires immediate and proactive policy.

Our society is experiencing a significant demographic shift towards an older population, bringing both challenges and opportunities. The aging population places pressures on our healthcare system due to the high costs of managing chronic, age-related diseases and the impact on our economy. The emerging field of geroscience and longevity science offers a promising approach to addressing this demographic crisis.

Geroscience, or commonly referred to as “longevity science,” is a multidisciplinary field of research that intersects biology, genetics, and medical science. Its focus is on understanding the complex mechanisms of aging at the cellular level, with the aim of developing therapeutics to slow down or even reverse this process.

The potential benefits of these developments are immense, including not only improved quality of life for individuals but also the realization of a “longevity dividend” for our economy. This refers to the economic and societal benefits reaped from extending healthy human lifespan, including a healthier, more productive older population and reduced healthcare expenses.
To realize this potential and ensure these therapeutics can be accessed by all, your support is essential for three key initiatives:

Increase funding for geroscience research. This can be done by increasing the budget of the National Institute on Aging’s Division of Aging Biology.
Appoint dedicated program managers focused on aging/longevity biotech in the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H).
Implement regulatory reform within the FDA to facilitate the approval of therapies that target aging.

In addition to these initiatives, we implore you to join the Longevity Science Caucus, led by Congressman Gus Biliraks and Congressman Paul Tonko. By joining, you will be taking a significant step towards supporting these initiatives and positioning our district at the forefront of this transformative industry. For further details on this emerging field, we encourage you to visit the Alliance for Longevity Initiatives (A4LI) website.

Thank you for your attention and consideration. I look forward to seeing [your Congressional District] be a leader in the longevity science industry’s effort.

Best Regards,
