    This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism


    6:00pm–8:00pm

    Pasadena Senior Center hosts "This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism," a talk and booking signing with Aston Applewhite. Debunking myths about late life, international author and activist Applewhite passionately urges us to come together at all ages – and dismantle ageism in the process. 

    With humor and insight Applewhite will share her own personal experiences with ageism – defined as “treating a person differently on the basis of age.” She will talk about her work, which explores ageism’s destructive impact on individuals, our community, and our policies.

    Chronological age is often a key factor in decision-making about treatment for physical and mental health; or selection for housing, employment, or access to other opportunities, says Applewhite which marginalizes and discriminates against older people.

    "This Chair Rocks" does not simply identify the problem. It offers a wealth of ideas about how to counteract ageism. Applewhite's work is a call to action for people who value innovation, interdependence, and creative options for living well whatever one’s chronological age. Ageism not only harms older people, it divides the generations.

    While there is no cost to attend the event, registration is required - call 626.795.4331.
