Jenn Oxborrow, executive director of the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition. In the past week, Salt Lake City has experienced three domestic violence tragedies: four deaths, two officer-involved shootings, three critical gunshot injuries—including a responding officer, and at least two children under the age of 10 who have directly witnessed horrific violence in their homes.
Utah Pride Center’s Deb Hall, who discussed how we take care of the generation of LGBTQ+ folks who started the fight for Queer rights, as well as how Sage Utah is working to address their needs in Salt Lake City and around the state.
A program of the Utah Pride Center, SAGE Utah focuses on meeting the following needs and quality of life for LGBTQ+ adults as they age:
Social Needs (events, activities, functions, gatherings, outings, networking)
Emotional Needs (relationships, love, care giving & care taking, companionship, friendship development, support systems)
Physical Needs (wellness, healthcare, financial, sexual health and exercise)
Mental Needs (learning, growing, forums, lectures, panels, presentations, workshops, support groups, expanding mindsets)
Spiritual Needs (connectivity, self-awareness, renewal, self-enlightenment, reinvention and evolving) and is an affiliate of the national SAGE organization based in New York. SAGE Utah seeks to build a strong LGBTQ community, advocate for safe and affirming care for LGBTQ seniors, and impact societal outlook on aging in a positive way.
