Tell a New Story

Download or print this colorful, new flyer that tells The Story of Reframing Aging. This handy resource provides a brief overview of why ageism harms all of us, what ageism sounds like, some suggestions for what you can do to confront the injustice of ageism, and a handy Quick Start Guide that underscores the need to choose our words wisely.
 

Why Reframing Aging?

The Reframing Aging Initiative is a long-term social change endeavor designed to improve the public’s understanding of what aging means and the many ways that older people contribute to our society. This greater understanding will counter ageism and guide our nation’s approach to ensuring supportive policies and programs for us all as we move through the life course. 

Julie Sweetland of FrameWorks Institute offers a two-minute overview of the key concepts behind the Reframing Aging Initiative.
