It is said that it takes a village. Ideally, we need a village of people working together, supporting LGBT older people to experience the peace and fulfillment they worked so hard to earn. As a member of a village that has been built up around one or more LGBT older people, there are many things you can do to take part in building and maintaining the supportive structures that promote justice, while preventing and addressing isolation and elder abuse in LGBT communities.

Paying it Back: Promoting Justice for LGBT Communities of All Ages provides information and steps to promote justice and prevent and address social isolation and LGBT specific elder abuse. Please share with friends, family and caregivers.
