Age Friendly Fairfax Forum: 

“Being an Ally to Those Different From Me” 

Friday May 29, 1-2:00PM

America is the land of the diverse, and it can be a challenge to know how to relate to people with life experiences quite unlike our own. What does it mean be an ally?? Join us to hear from two speakers, Dana van Gorder, Executive Director of the Spahr Center, our local LGBTQ non-profit, and Lisa Bennett, Core Group member of SURJ Marin, Showing Up for Racial Justice, which "engages white people to dismantle systems of white supremacy."
