The Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO) is a coalition of 69 national organizations working to preserve and strengthen the well-being of older adults. LCAO shares a vision of a society made more whole and vital through the genuine inclusion and celebration of our diverse aging populations, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) older adults. In this spirit, and on behalf of the LCAO membership, I urge you to pass the Equality Act (H.R. 5), a comprehensive federal nondiscrimination law that promotes equal treatment for LGBT people of all ages.
