Senior services is at the heart of what the Montrose Center does. We are dedicated to providing LGBTQ older adults with life-enhancing services to meet a variety of needs unique to our population. SAGE, Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Elders is asking for the community to support our Greatest Generation.
You have an opportunity right now to help improve the lives of LGBT elders. Sign this petition to help ensure that LGBTQ elders receive the services and supports that they deserve. Our elders paved the way for many of the rights we now have and those for which we continue to fight. They’ve had our back, now let’s return the favor. The deadline is August 22nd!
Here’s the background. For the very first time, the federal Administration for Community Living (ACL) is considering issuing guidance under the Older Americans Act that would hold the aging network accountable for reaching LGBT elders. They need to hear from LGBTQ people and allies from across the country, especially in the South and Midwest. We need to tell ACL that these guidelines are critical, doable, and impactful!
So if you’re an LGBTQ elder, or you work with them or care for them, you should show your support! Click here and sign your name to our action alert. We also offer the action alert in Spanish. ¡Tome acción ahora!
