AB-2719 Passes

LGBTQ seniors in California will be among the first eligible for critical services as they age, after the state passed a law that categorizes them as those with the “greatest need.”   On Friday August 24th 2018, Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 2719, which adds sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression to the California Department of Aging’s list of prioritized communities for programs and services.  The department administers health programs, legal assistance, employment services and benefits counseling among other services.  Read more about AB-2719 here.
