CELEBRATE & STAND UP FOR MEDICARE, MEDICAID, & SOCIAL SECURITY!

Thursday, August 9th, 2:30–4:00 PM @ United Federation of Teachers, 52 Broadway, New York City. Featuring speakers, testimonials, cake, and more!

Today is the 53rd anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid.  Aug. 14 is the 83rd anniversary of Social Security.  These programs form the bedrock of our nation’s historic social contract and safety net.  They are also under very serious threats, if not outright attacks, from the Trump administration and their congressional allies.

Join us to celebrate these terrific programs, and as we also recommit to protecting, improving, and expanding them:

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.

What is The Radical Age Movement?

Alice Fisher, President and Founder, and Steve Burghardt speak about what The Radical Age Movement is on CUNYTV:
