Confronting Ageism

People are living longer, and yet we as a society don’t know how to make the best use of these extra years.  We need new social visions that will inspire and support people of all races, classes, genders, and sexualities to grow and participate actively throughout their entire lives.

No age-segregation or pitting generation against generation — we want a society that works for us all.  We can’t leave it to ‘experts’ to tell us how to age ‘well’ or ‘successfully,’ or to an aging industrial complex that sees older adults as a dependent group or growing market of consumers.

It’s up to us.

It’s time for a Radical Age Movement, a grassroots nationwide effort that challenges traditional notions of aging and introduces new ideas for building co-creative and interdependent communities.

Ageism In the News

Journey to Age Justice: Why it’s Time for a Radical Age Movement

“I was participating in a focus group discussion about aging. During the conversation someone states: ‘I don’t know how you can change an entire culture.’ My gut reaction is “With a movement; it’s the only way we’ve ever accomplished cultural change in America.” With that, The RadicalAgeMovement was conceived.” 
-Alice Fisher, Founder

“Aging Bodies and Nimble Minds Can Go Together” (Article from U.S. News)

“Age milestones, medical conditions or memory changes don’t mean cognitive impairment is looming.”
