Jim Obergefell Joins SAGE Board

By Charlotte Robinson, February 06, 2018
SAGE, the nation’s largest & oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT elders announced that Jim Obergefell, the named plaintiff in the landmark marriage equality Supreme Court case Obergefell v. Hodges is joining its Board of Directors. Michael Adams, SAGE's CEO stated, “We are deeply honored to add Jim’s expertise & energy to our board. Having accompanied Jim & our beloved friend Edie Windsor on a groundbreaking journey toward marriage equality, we continue to be awed by Jim’s unwavering commitment and outspoken voice in support of the entire LGBT community.” Elizabeth F. Schwartz, SAGE board co-chair, adds, “The LGBT movement has achieved great change by telling our stories. Jim Obergefell shared the painful passing of his husband & his fight to be recognized as a spouse brought us marriage equality. Jim’s decision to bring his big heart & sharp mind to SAGE’s board speaks volumes about his continuing work toward equality for our most vulnerable community.” Obergefell concluded, “I’m excited to serve on the board of an organization that does so much to help those who paved the way for younger LGBTQ generations. Our elders’ courage & sacrifices helped create a more supportive & welcoming world for us & SAGE fights to ensure that they are able to enjoy the same. It’s an honor to work with SAGE on their behalf.” In 2016 I talked to Obergefell in this exclusive audio podcast on the red carpet at the GLAAD Media Awards about LGBTQ equality & more. LISTEN:
