SAGE Welcomes Susan Herr as Chief Engagement Officer and Lynn Faria as Senior Director for External Affairs

Herr and Faria Energize Constituencies during Period of Significant Growth for SAGE

[New York, NY ] SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) has welcomed Susan Herr as Chief Engagement Officer, overseeing SAGE’s Development, Policy and Communications work, and Lynn Faria as Senior Director for External Affairs, leading SAGE’s Development and Policy teams. The two appointments represent a new focus on innovative constituent engagement and donor relations for SAGE.

“Lynn and Susan bring tremendous energy to SAGE in these newly created roles.” said Michael Adams, Executive Director of SAGE. “With marriage now a codified right, aging issues are the next frontier for our movement.  Lynn and Susan are innovative leaders who will help us expand and engage our powerful community of supporters and advocates in this new chapter.”

SAGE is in a period of unprecedented programmatic growth. In 2015, it has launched a comprehensive national initiative to address the LGBT older adult housing crisis, brought the voices and concerns of LGBT older people to the White House Conference on Aging, and completed an expansion of its Innovative Senior Centers across New York City. Faria and Herr will play critical roles in leading SAGE through this significant growth and as well as an upcoming strategic planning process.

Herr takes a path-breaking approach to community engagement. “I’m driven to find out how we can make the well-being of LGBT elders one of the top concerns of LGBT people of all ages nationwide,  and what will it take to enlist broad swaths of both the LGBT community and our allies in advancing this cause,” she remarked.  “These questions will guide our work as SAGE enters an exciting and impactful new chapter.”
