To Build an Ageless, Equitable, and Inclusive New York City for all, we must Eliminate Ageism and all its Inequities.

Ageism is “the third great ‘ism’ in our society, after racism and sexism.” - Palmore, 2001

said that they experienced at least one form of ageism in their day-to-day lives.

Racial and ethnic minority groups are likely to enter old age in poorer health and at greater risk of vulnerability due to life-long discrimination.

“The injurious reach of ageism that our team documented demonstrates the need for
initiatives
to overcome ageism”

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a multitude of inequalities. It has disproportionately affected older people's lives, causing devastating blows to their physical health, their mental health and their livelihoods, especially to older minorities. It has exposed heath inequities, it has worsened ageism, it has increased social isolation, it has increased financial insecurity. Over the longer term, income inequality, high levels of public debt, a weakened economy and other factors exacerbated by the pandemic imperil the services and health and pension safety nets that so many older people rely on.

By supporting older people to live better, longer lives, you are also helping your own future as an older adult.
