The Aging Network plays a critical role in delivering services to older adults across the country. Yet, LGBT older adults often remain invisible and may not seek services due to fear of, and experiences with, discrimination. In 2017, SAGE’s National Resource Center on LGBT Aging released the guide Strengthen Your State and Local Aging Plan: A Practical Guide for Expanding LGBT Inclusion. Join this webinar to hear from Area Agencies on Aging who have been successful in including LGBT older adults. They will discuss how planning has helped their AAA with LGBT outreach and services, as well as challenges and lessons learned.
