“Leave No One Behind”: Reflections from the 70th United Nations General Assembly & Sustainable Development Summit
By Kathy Greenlee, Assistant Secretary of Aging and Administrator, ACL
Last week, I joined colleagues from the Department of State and U.S. Agency for International Development as part of the U.S. Delegation to the 70th United Nations General Assembly.
While it is clear that we still have a great deal of work to do, the world is finally starting to take note of the contributions and concerns of older adults and people with disabilities. Advocates for these under-represented groups played an important role throughout the Sustainable Development Summit. I am proud to have been among them, and I am looking forward to continuing our work to ensure the human rights many of us take for granted extend to all people, throughout the lifespan, regardless of age or ability.
