According to a Harvard study, over the next two decades, more than 27.7 million people will join the 50 and over age group. Most of this increase will be among the population aged 65 and over. The number of people over 65 years of age who are working has doubled. As the population ages, more people will encounter ageism. It isn’t a topic that is commonly talked about and it is as important as racism or sexism. What can we do to address ageism? Kellee discusses with Ashton Applewhite, the activist-author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism. She will share what we can do about ageism now.
