Photo-shoot Opportunity: Diverse Older Adults 50+ (NYC, Feb. 23, 11am-4pm)

The Diverse Elders Coalition (DEC) advocates for policies and programs that improve aging in our communities as racially and ethnically diverse people, American Indians and Alaska Natives, and LGBT people.

As the coalition enters the next phase of its exciting work, they are refreshing their website diverseelders.org to more accurately represent diverse communities.

They are looking for diverse older adults, aged 50+, in the New York City area to participate in a photo-shoot.  The shoot will take place in mid-town Manhattan on Sunday, February 23 from 11am-4pm. Exact address will be given to chosen participants.

The DEC is looking for about six (6) older people (male and female) of racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds (i.e. African American, Hispanic, Asian American, American Indians etc.), who are at least 50 years of age or older. They are also looking for older adults who openly identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT).

Chosen participants will be treated to snacks and beverages throughout the shoot.

Photos will be used publicly at the discretion of the Diverse Elders Coalition (including, but not limited to, on the diverseelders.org website). Participants will have to sign a waiver indicating their permission to use photos publicly.
