political committee made up of more than thirty groups and individuals who wanted to educate, advocate and legislate for equal
human rights, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. The founding members of New AGE included Bobbi Bennett, Sydney Crocker,
Myra Riddell, and Jerold Krieger. To coordinate and implement the goals set forth by New AGE they retained the partnership
of David B. Mixner and Peter Scott of Mixner/Scott Associates.
