Intersectionality in the LGBTQ and Aging Communities.

Cool invitation, SLIGHTLY edited, though RantWoman has had previous positive experience with Senior Services. RantWoman should meditate about whether blog is the best route to reach people in her circles who might come....

Intersectionality in the LGBTQ & Aging Communities
An Open Training for Service Providers
Friday, August 28, 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Senior Services
2208 Second Ave., Suite 100
Seattle, WA 98121
Senior Services would like to invite you to participate in a pilot training (#disability ????)to focus on LGBTQ seniors and how the intersectionality of race, gender, sexual orientation, and age  can impact the experience of accessing services.  We will also explore how your organization can address the challenges specific to these populations, discuss barriers to support, and share strategies.  We are particularly interested in those who work or interact with senior care facilities and those who interact with seniors in their work or affiliation with a LGBTQ-centered organization.
Please consider sending your staff or volunteers to this training, particularly if they have a role in outreach or intake, or residential activities.  Feel free to distribute to throughout your community.
This pilot is funded by the Pride Foundation and participation is no charge. Seating is limited to 40.  There will be refreshments and light snacks.
Please register with your name and affiliation by August 18, 2015 at: trainingreg@seniorservices.org
