Highlights from Creating Change’s opening plenary

February 5, 2010

The irrepressible Kate Clinton, Creating Change’s emcee extraordinaire, entertained the crowd throughout the evening, noting that Dallas resident and former President George W. Bush is regularly spotted riding his bicycle around town in his helmet. “Why? What’s to protect?” she quipped. Photo credit: Inga Sarda-Sorensen

Michael Adams, executive director of SAGE, presents Joyce Pierson with the SAGE Advocacy Award for Excellence in Leadership on Aging Issues. Pierson, who does "this work not for the middle but for the edges," acknowledges other leaders in the LGBT elder movement who have created a national voice for LGBT elder rights in her acceptance speech. She also stresses the importance of reinstating the Older Americans Act, which "is subversive enough" to be useful for LGBT elders. Photo credit: Inga Sarda-Sorensen

Sharon M. Day of the First Nations Collective shared an opening prayer at the plenary, and was later presented with the the AIDS Community Action Award. She is the one of the founders of the Indigenous Peoples Task Force.Photo credit: Inga Sarda-Sorensen
