Sussex Pride is proud to announce a new partnership with SAGECollab, SAGE’s innovative partnership model. SAGE, the world’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the mof LGBTQ+ elders, created SAGECollab to bring together a diverse national network of groups, organizations, and individuals to support LGBTQ+ older people and advocate for LGBTQ+ aging policies across the country. SAGE has over forty years of experience providing direct services and supports to LGBTQ+ elders, including technical assistance provided by the National Resource Center on LGBTQ+ Aging and cultural competency training conducted by SAGECare.
SAGECollab aims to inspire and support organizations involved with aging programs and advocacy for older LGBTQ+ communities, particularly BIPOC elders, transgender and non-binary elders, and rural elders. Through years of growth and expertise, SAGE has built a nationwide network and is eager to share resources with organizations like [insert org name]. Working together can provide support, resources, and community connections to many more LGBTQ+ elders.
Sussex Pride Aging, a program of Sussex Pride, works to support LGBTQ+ older adults in Sussex County and the state of Delaware. Sussex Pride can be found on facebook at fb.com/sussexprideaging or on instagram at instagram.com/sussexprideaging.
As a member of SAGECollab, Sussex Pride Aging can access technical assistance and expertise from SAGE and support from peers around the country. SAGECollab partners exchange ideas, explore public policy changes, and inspire each to support better support and empower older LGBTQ+ people everywhere. With SAGE’s resources, trainings, and connections to other partners across the country, we can create programs and initiatives tailored to meet our community’s unique needs.
Sussex Prideis excited to have this opportunity to improve the lives of older members of our LGBTQ+ community and to allow our programs and services to shine. Organizations and groups interested in joining SAGECollab can visit sageusa.org/sagecollab for more information.
