NM Centers Seeking Seniors for SAGE New Mexico Advisory Committee
New Mexico GLBTQ Centers is seeking affiliation with SAGE USA to create services for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender older New Mexicans.
SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders) is the world’s oldest and largest nonprofit agency dedicated to serving and advocating for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) seniors. New Mexico Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning/Queer Centers (NM Centers) is currently working toward establishing SAGE New Mexico to provide services for LGBT elders statewide.
NM Centers is seeking seniors (55+) statewide to serve on the SAGE New Mexico Advisory Committee. The committee will help develop a short and long term plan that will identify goals and benchmarks for the program. The advisory committee will provide ongoing input to program staff and the NM Centers Board of Directors on senior issues. Professionals working with seniors are welcome to apply. If you are interested on serving New Mexico seniors contact David Stocum, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since SAGE was founded in 1978, activists in a number of communities around the country have started their own SAGE affiliates to serve and advocate for LGBT seniors. SAGE works with affiliates in communities like Milwaukee, St. Louis, Salt Lake City, Buffalo, and soon New Mexico to make life better for LGBT older people in their home communities and across the country.
