Let's Keep Disrupting Outdated Beliefs About Aging
What a month we've had! We thank you for being such a key part of it. With the launch of the Disrupt Aging book last month, we've been spreading the message to live a fuller, richer life - regardless of age - and take a stand against ageism. Our newest video, What is Old?, has really registered with you and has become a viral sensation.
We're finding Age Disruptors in every age range - including a feisty 9-year-old reporter who fires back at age discriminators online. We've asked you to share your stories - how have you torn down ageism barriers? Tell us what's important to you. Follow the conversation on social media and together let's keep disrupting outdated beliefs.
