Last month, SAGE raised the alarm when the Trump administration moved to erase LGBT elders from a government aging survey. The National Survey of Older Americans Act Participants is used to determine what services will be provided to older Americans in need. If this important survey stops gathering information about LGBT elders, our needs won’t be represented.

»The Trump Administration Is Rolling Back Data Collection on LGBT Older Adults (Center for American Progress)
»Trump Administration Proposes Eliminating LGBT Elders from Key Federal Survey (SageUSA)
This is a first step in erasing the LGBT community from the American map.
We will not be erased.
We will not be eliminated.
We will not go quietly.
