Community Conversation on Ageism

Feb 2, 2021 | Member News

As part of Changing the Narrative in Colorado’s on the same pAGE campaign, the Weld County Area Agency on Aging is hosting a virtual session about ageism on Friday, February 26th at 1:00-2:30 pm in partnership with Senior Helpers.
Why are we doing this? Ageism—the stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination against
people on the basis of their age—is pervasive! It can be directed at younger people or older
people. Either way, it reduces opportunities and diminishes us all.

The good news: Research shows that education and intergenerational connection are
effective in reducing ageism. When we come together to share our perspectives, people’s attitudes about age shift. Collectively, we can all participate in changing our biases and reducing ageism.

Want to participate? It’s easy—just register for the online session by calling (970) 658-8228 or email Emily at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you on February 26th.
