Dr. Nii-Quartelai Quartey serves AARP’s diverse membership, including over a million LGBTQ-plus members, as the organization’s Senior Advisor and National LGBTQ Liaison. In his conversation with How We Got Here, Nii-Quartelai describes several of the childhood experiences that ignited his passion for advocacy work. He also shares some of the latest AARP research on LGBTQ caregivers and how to care for members of the LGBTQ community and explains why advancing longevity is a justice issue. Nii-Quartelai also discusses the forthcoming long-term care index from SAGE and the Human Rights Council and how it will help families find safe and accepting communities, becoming a long-distance caregiver for both his mother and brother during the pandemic, and the difference between equality and equity.
