As COVID-19 sweeps across New Jersey, we need to protect LGBTQ and HIV+ seniors in longterm care facilities — now!
It's time for New Jersey to pass A680 / S1926 — the LGBTQ Older Adults Bill of Rights. This bill would provide specific, enumerated protections for LGBTQ and HIV+ seniors in longterm care facilities, so that they can get the critical healthcare they need right now.
Older adults are disproportionately at risk for COVID-19, and LGBTQ seniors face significant health disparities which only magnify those risks.
We have no time to waste. Sign our petition now and urge lawmakers to protect LGBTQ older adults in longterm care facilities.
