LGBT Elders Send Powerful Message to Federal Administration for Community Living
By: Diverse Elders

In August 2016, SAGE delivered more than 2,800 comments to the Administration for Community Living regarding a plan that would guide state aging offices in allocating resources for diverse elders as they age – including, for the very first time, LGBT older people. The comments from SAGE’s members and allies were collected as part of a collaborative effort led by the Diverse Elders Coalition.
