Professor Stark Presents at OUTAging Conference

Professor Debra Stark was a panelist at OUTAging: Summit on Our Possibilities on May 24. The goals of the summit were to create a platform that centers the voices and experiences of LGBQT older adults to shed light on the issues they face and gaps in services, resources and opportunities; to provide a diverse and inclusive forum for redefining aging and care; and to develop an agenda for advocacy, resources and inclusion with and for LGBTQ older adults.

Stark spoke on legal protections available to the LGBTQ community relating to domestic violence and elder abuse under the Illinois Domestic Violence Act.

The event was held at AARP Illinois’  office  and hosted by Pride Action Tank, a nonprofit organization working to improve the health, safety and progress of the LGBTQ community by inspiring, supporting and leading collaborative action.
