On Monday, January 16th, AGE+ will join the nation in celebrating the legacy and life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Raising awareness about the unseen faces of aging and the diverse populations calling Oregon their home is key to our mission. Last year, we released the briefing paper, Joys Amidst Tribulation: Aging While Black in Oregon. The paper meant to serve as a tool to bring attention to the challenges and resiliency of older Black Oregonians and the communities that support them.
