Diverse Elders Coalition

Submitted by: Enola Romano, Montclair Public Library, Jun 15, 2016

The Diverse Elders Coalition was created in 2010 to ensure that the needs and perspectives of vulnerable elders would be heard when and where it mattered. The coalition includes: Asian American & Pacific Islander Elders, Black Elders, American Indian & Alaska Native Elders, Hispanic Elders, & LGBT Elders. Together they strive to address three main areas of concern:   ECONOMIC SECURITY, POOR HEALTH AND HEALTH CARE ACCESS & BARRIERS TO ACCESSING SERVICES.
