Racism has no place in WV aging services

As a West Virginian and as Executive Director of West Virginia Senior Legal Aid I am sad and angry to see news reports of racist statements published in social media by a county senior program director and a mayor in our state.

I hope that our network of aging services providers in West Virginia stands up against racism in any form, especially in the delivery of services to older West Virginians. I can promise you that at WV Senior Legal we welcome with open arms the opportunity to serve senior West Virginians of color, and look forward to continuing to fight discrimination on the basis of race in every corner of our state.
