Class description

What do you want to share with someone of a different age engaged in progressive work? What do you want to ask? Every age has something to teach and something to learn. This class will foster multi-age understanding, friendships, and collaboration. As we articulate ways that ageism comes up in progressive circles, working on it can make us a more supportive community and more effective in our activist work. In small groups we will look at real life examples of ageism from progressive settings and discuss alternative interventions so that we practice building solidarity among generations.
