1 October 2016: Take a stand against ageism!
The theme for International Day of Older Persons this year is ‘Take a stand against ageism’.
We live in a world where people are denied their rights, simply because of their age. This must change!
Age Demands Action campaigners across the world are taking a stand by highlighting how widespread ageism is and how it leads to the discrimination, stereotyping and abuse of older people everywhere.
