On Monday, November 5th, the Senior Mob Squad attended a public hearing: Agencies on Aging Area Plan, hosted by the County/City of Los Angeles. They shared their concerns about aging as an LGBTQ person, and what services are needed for their community.
Who We Are
The Senior Mob Squad is a community of volunteer older adult advocates living in Los Angeles County, who are dedicated to protecting and expanding the rights of the LGBTQ community. The group is housed under the Los Angeles LGBT Center's Senior Services Department.
Through education, actions, and leadership development, the Mob Squad mobilizes volunteers to engage in meaningful and experienced-based actions that impact policy decisions on the local, state, and federal level to help protect the rights of LGBTQ community. Our priority policy campaigns include:
- Housing and Homelessness
- Equality and Discrimination
- Transgender Issues
Previous actions have included letter-writing to expand the rights of LGBTQ immigrants in California, sharing stories to advocate for services and programs for LGBTQ older adults, composing postcards and letters to send to elected officials, lobby visits, and and joining marches and rallies to show our support for the LGBTQ community.
