Ageism is embedded in our culture and widely understood as a barrier to opportunity, contribution, and quality of life for people over 50. The Encore Network helps people shift perceptions and navigate the barriers created by ageism, but what about changing the system itself? We will define an advocacy agenda and develop strategies for changing policies and practices that drive or enable ageist attitudes, behaviors, and decisions. Together, we can build broader support for the changes we want to see.
The Advocacy Affinity Group meets on the third Wednesday of each month from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET.
