A Nonprofit Committed to Comprehensive Ageism Information and Education
Understanding Age Discrimination In Society
Ageism.org is a comprehensive informational and educational resource that guides individuals towards an overall understanding of the effects of ageism and age discrimination in society.
We’ve all heard the classic and cliched expressions: thrown out to pasture, past your prime, can’t teach an old dog new tricks, behind the times, over the hill.
These terms are associated with older generations, but ageism isn’t isolated to just one age demographic. Have you heard these: inexperienced, too young to lead, lacking responsibility, adulting, millennial.
And what about the terms that apply to the youngest of us all, children: act your age, you’re not ready yet, you’ll get it when you’re older, what do you know, you don’t know how.
You would almost think this is an epidemic. A systemic and immoral unconscious behavior that is ingrained in us from infancy. This is where we would tell you to take action, but you already are, because you’re here. You get it. This is something that every human on this planet has experienced, or they will. It will emotionally plague us all.
Our educational tools and resources can help you to be better informed about ageist discriminatory behavior in your daily life. In turn, your awareness can help educate others to continue eliminating ageism in our society.
