What is PS OLOC?
Puget Sound OLOC (PS OLOC) is a chapter of National OLOC, Old Lesbians Organizing for Change. OLOC focuses on raising consciousness about ageism among old lesbians, within the LGBTQ community and society at large.
What do we do?
PS OLOC focuses on connecting old lesbians throughout the Puget Sound area to form community, and to encourage participation in activities and causes that work to improve our lives, and increase our visibility.
OLOC, Old Lesbians Organizing for Change
OLOC is a national network of Old Lesbians over age 60 working to make life better for Old Lesbians through support networks and by confronting ageism in our communities and our country using education and public discourse as primary tools. OLOC is directed by a Steering Committee that publishes a quarterly newsletter, The Reporter, and produces biennial National Gatherings where hundreds of us come together to share experiences and ideas and recharge our energies for the tasks at hand. OLOC encourages Regional Gatherings and local chapters operating independently in their own communities. We love sharing our wisdom, experience, strengths and laughs among ourselves and our communities.
