This is an occasional feature highlighting websites, blogs and organizations happened-upon while browsing the internet (does anyone say ‘surfing’ anymore?). This one is of special resonance for lgbtSr – and me. Check them out! – Mark/Editor
The Diverse Elders Coalition (DEC) advocates for policies and programs that improve aging in our communities as racially and ethnically diverse people; American Indians and Alaska Natives; and lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender people.
Together, we are made up of five national organizations representing a growing majority of millions of older people throughout the country—racially and ethnically diverse older adults; LGBT older adults; and poor and low-income older adults. We have come together to promote policy changes and programmatic solutions that respond to this demographic shift and will remove the barriers facing our communities. We envision a world where all older adults can live full and active lives as they age.
