In communities across the country, SAGENet—SAGE’s network of local affiliates around the country—is building a movement to reduce isolation, improve financial security and enhance the quality of life for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults.
Through SAGENet, these local leaders draw on the wisdom of their peers to implement programs and services that address the most urgent issues facing LGBT elders—from unemployment, to housing, to LGBT-affirming healthcare and more. And they're creating advocacy initiatives where LGBT elders advocate on their own behalf—at the local, state and federal levels.
Meet our SAGENet affiliates: Services & Advocacy Nationwide
SAGENet is comprises 27 affiliates located in 20 states around the country, across every region of the country. These affiliates provide services and programs to LGBT older people in their local communities. They also work on city and state advocacy to ensure that public policies better support the needs of LGBT elders.
Interested in joining SAGENet and becoming an affiliate?
SAGE is not accepting applications for affiliation at this time. We encourage local leaders who are interested in becoming a SAGE affiliate to submit our Letter of Interest. We will contact you by June 2014 if you have been approved for consideration. Unfortunately, we are not able to review requests for SAGE affiliates before June 2014. Learn more about SAGE and LGBT aging online at www.sageusa.org and www.lgbtagingcenter.org.
SAGE would like to thank the The Atlantic Philanthropies, the Gill Foundation, the Ford Foundation and the Arcus Foundation for their generous support of SAGE's advocacy work, including SAGENet.
