Dignity, respect, and care can’t wait
By: Diverse Elders

This post originally appeared on the SAGE blog.

The Trump administration is giving businesses and medical providers a license to discriminate: to deny services to LGBT individuals based on religious or moral beliefs. In response, SAGE is enlisting the power of the LGBT community, its allies, and organizations who care for LGBT elders to take a stand in our Care Can’t Wait social media campaign.

SAGE acknowledges and thanks all the partner organizations who have taken the pledge and encourages others to join us in standing up for LGBT elders in the face of religious-based discrimination.

The list of people and organizations who have pledged to stand with LGBT elders is growing everyday. Will you join us? Take the pledge.
