Say NO to Ageism!

October 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am MDT

Free

In recognition of the International Day of Older Persons, Top Sixty will host an open forum on Zoom to identify and promote ideas and activities that everyone can engage in to combat ageism.

The demographic shift to “older” will be the norm well into the latter part of the 21st century. If we don’t acknowledge the extent to which our Western culture has undermined the value and contribution of our elders now, the negative stereotypes and myths about aging will persist. This should be a concern to all of us, including politicians. Ageism negatively impacts individuals, society and future economic prosperity.

Let’s not wait for leaders; let’s become them!

Join us to learn about actions and activities that we can all undertake to make a dent in combatting ageism today. All ages are affected and every age counts. Please share this opportunity with friends, family, employers, and others who care.
