Non-profit groups and organizations that serve or advocate with LGBTQ+ elders will benefit from becoming a part of SAGECollab. Together, we exchange ideas, explore public policy changes, and inspire each other to better support and empower LGBTQ+ elders everywhere. Our SAGECollab Circles provide members with meetings, webinars, chances to interact and learn from national experts and their peers, and much more.
These are collaboration opportunities for organizations from across the country that are, or are interested in, advocating for policy and legislative changes at the federal, state and local level that improve the aging experience for LGBTQ+ elders and older people living with HIV. Learn what organizations are doing to fight for LGBTQ+ aging policies and collaborate with other organizations in your advocacy goals.
