RSVP for free Standing in Solidarity panels on LGBTQ+ aging and allyship!


A message from NJPAC's Community Engagement Team.


Let NJPAC help you “spring” into action with two powerful Standing in Solidarity (SIS) programs, these are free conversations and PSEG True Diversity Film screenings that promote social and racial equality.

On April 15 at 7PM there is a virtual program on Aging with Pride: Challenges for the LGBTQ+ Community. A panel comprised of activists and healthcare professionals will discuss structural and societal barriers to healthy aging. Gen Silent, the PSEG True Diversity Film, can be watched in advance at home.

Then in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the Arts Center will host an in-person program May 6 at 6PM on Chinese and Black Allyship. The evening includes a screening of Far East Deep South, a PSEG True Diversity Film selection, about symbiotic ties between Chinese and Black residents in the Jim Crow South. A live panel follows with the film’s producer and other experts on immigration and identity.

We look forward to welcoming you to upcoming Standing in Solidarity events!
