Advocacy Affinity Group

July 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

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.

Our agenda this month will focus on two topics:
1.) Designing and planning for distribution of our Election Questionnaire and Toolkit for Querying Candidates about Aging and  Employment Policy
2.) Inputs from the Affinity Group Summit that can inform our activities in the coming months.

If you have questions about the group, contact Janine Vanderburg or Doug Dickson.
