Dignity, respect, and care can’t wait

 In: Articles

Dignity, respect, care flag The Trump administration is giving businesses and medical providers a license to discriminate: to deny services to LGBTQ+ individuals based on religious or moral beliefs. In response, SAGE is enlisting the power of the LGBTQ+ community, its allies, and organizations who care for LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+ elders in the face of religious-based discrimination. Take the pledge. Stand with LGBTQ+ elders.
