SAGE: Webinar on LGBTQ+ Inclusive Planning for State Units on Aging

Event Start Date: April 04, 2023 - 3:00 PM EDT

Register here for this webinar.

Join the SAGE National Resource Center on LGBTQ+ Aging, one of the ACL-funded national Minority Aging Technical Assistance and Resource Centers, for their webinar, “Coast to Coast and Everything In-between: LGBTQ+ Inclusive State Planning.” 

The SAGE National Resource Center on LGBTQ+ Aging has long worked with state units on aging and disability organizations to support the inclusion of older LGBTQ+ people in data collection, outreach, and services. These efforts were strengthened by the inclusion of LGBTQ+ communities in the 2020 reauthorization of the Older Americans Act (OAA) and subsequent State Plan guidance from ACL.

This webinar will provide lessons learned from coast to coast. It will also include a discussion panel and Q&A on LGBTQ+ aging, successful planning strategies, and actions state units on aging can take to create welcoming and inclusive aging services for LGBTQ+ elders as outlined in the OAA. This webinar will feature speakers from ACL, ADvancing States, the Illinois Department on Aging, and the Maine Department of Health and Human Services.

Live captioning will be provided. Requests for reasonable accommodations for the webinar should be made at least 72 hours in advance of the webinar, by sending an email to
