Our June 8, 2022 alliance meeting on “Engaging Historically Marginalized Older Adults in Age-Friendly Communities” had two enlightening presentations by Drs. Laurent Reyes and Melanie Plasencia, followed by a lively Q & A session. Some key takeaways included:
• The importance of recruiting people with historically marginalized identities as leaders;
• Designing events that include elements of cultural importance; and
• Recognizing the leadership already occurring in communities.
