 In: Events

On Tuesday, November 17th, 2015, SAGE in collaboration with the Federal Administration for Community Living hosted a convening of consumers and influential stakeholders from state and local aging programs, the LGBT community and LGBT older adults, data and research experts, and federal aging officials, to analyze available research and data and identify next steps for enhancing Aging Services Network outreach to LGBT older adults.

The participants reflected the diversity of individuals both impacted by and involved in our federal aging policies, including: Kathy Greenlee, Administrator, Administration for Community Living/Assistant Secretary for Aging; Nora Super, Executive Director, White House Conference on Aging; Deborah Stone-Walls, Maui County Office on Aging, Wailuku, HI; Raven Heavy Runner, Muckleshoot Tribe, Pacific Northwest; and James Bulot, Georgia Department of Human Services, Division of Aging Services, Atlanta, GA, among many others.  Together, we worked to create a cross-sector roadmap for the federal government, the aging network, LGBT-serving organizations, data experts, and researchers, to enhance Aging Services Network outreach to LGBT older adults.
