Honor LGBT elders during Stonewall’s 50th anniversary year
Join us during Pride month in the Windy City as we honor Paula Basta, Director of the Illinois Department on Aging, for her dedicated leadership and commitment to LGBT aging issues. Enjoy a Belvedere open bar and appetizers at the home of Ken O’Keefe and Jason Stephens in downtown Chicago, near beautiful Millennium Park, where SAGE CEO Michael Adams will also share important updates from our work in Illinois and nationwide.
As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, it’s vital that we remember our LGBT elder pioneers who stood at the front-lines of our community’s struggle for equality. LGBT older Americans are at risk of losing some of their hard-fought rights. SAGE has been the leading organization advocating with and providing services to LGBT older adults for more than 40 years, and your support of this event will fuel SAGE’s ability to meet the increasing demand for crucial services and advocacy for LGBT elders.
