Senior Advocates for Generational Equity (SAGE) is a community of advocates in Portland, Oregon, who inspire older adults to give forward. In December, the group received a $90,000 grant from the PGE Drive Change Fund to support its Seniors for Electric Vehicles project. 

Local utility Portland General Electric is committed to reducing emissions through accelerating access to and adoption of electric vehicles. SAGE’s program will offer education, outreach, and an electric vehicle car-share program to serve senior communities, keep older adults engaged, and reduce their carbon footprint. 

Contact SAGE Executive Director Steve Higgs to learn about volunteering for this special project.
