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 Emily at (970) 658-8228 or email Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you on February 26th.
