The Claude Pepper Center is dedicated to keeping Sen. Pepper’s vision of America and sense of moral purpose central to the nation’s public life. The Claude Pepper Center intends to achieve this mission through research, policy analysis, public information, educational and advocacy initiatives.
All of our activities are dedicated to sustaining the Senator’s view that “the national attitude toward old people has made a 180-degree turn. More and more, younger generations have come to realize that in their elders they have a precious and useful asset, not a burden. Old people are the same persons they were when they were young. Some may not hear so well, may have to wear glasses, maybe are a step slower when they walk. But they are not useless, and they must not be treated as outcasts, as more and more Americans have come to realize.”
