Equity

At Justice in Aging, we believe that we should all be able to access the resources, services, and programs we need to thrive as we grow older no matter our race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, language, or country of origin.

For generations, systemic inequities and racism in health care, housing, and access to wealth and resources have kept people of color, women, LGBTQ+ individuals, those living with disabilities, immigrants, and those with limited English proficiency from meeting their basic needs. And when they age, their challenges become even greater due to the compounding effects and unique impact of ageism.

In 2021, we launched our Strategic Initiative to Advance Equity in Aging as a way to ensure that we are more intentionally pursuing systemic changes in law and policy that improve the lives of low-income older adults who experience inequities rooted in structural racism, ageism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, and xenophobia. The initiative empowers us to place equity, specifically racial equity, at the very center of our work. Learn more about our Strategic Initiative to Advance Equity in Aging.
