As we continue to face the COVID-19 pandemic, social isolation is especially acute for those in our community who are unable to leave their homes for social interaction. Our LGBT community, like our country, continues to be in uncharted waters. But we know what we need to do because we’ve done it before: we organize ourselves as effectively and as lovingly as possible to respond to an unprecedented health crisis.
For SAGE and LGBT pioneers across the country, the pandemic continues to eliminate in-person group interaction. SAGEConnect links LGBT elders with their broader community, reducing isolation and promoting well-being.
While much remains uncertain, we know the value of human connection. Now, more than ever, we need our community to come together and lift each other up — one call at a time. SAGE has teamed up with Mon Ami to connect LGBT older people with volunteers and allies across the country.
