80 Over 80 San Francisco: Margaret Graf

Margaret Graf

Margaret Graf founded SF Senior Power in the Outer Sunset to give older adults more tools to empower themselves. From personal experience, she knows that older adults do not always have the support or resources to care for their own emotional and physical needs, and her organization has responded by providing events, education, and community. She is also a retired registered nurse and lawyer, and now an advocate at the neighborhood and city level for the needs of older people in SF.
