Author and activist Ashton Applewhite is the keynote speaker at this year’s Village to Village Network annual conference in Columbus, Ohio from October 16-19.
She is widely recognized as an expert on ageism and urges all of us to create a world of age equality by making discrimination on the basis of age as unacceptable as any other kind. Whether you’re older or hoping to get there, her new book This Chair Rocks will shake you by the shoulders, cheer you up, make you mad, and change the way you see the rest of your life. Age pride!
Get a preview of the book by listening to this recent podcast shared by our friends and founders of the Retiree Rebels: Mary Helen Conroy and Carol Larson.
SAIL is a charter member of the Village to Village Network—a national association of over 200 “villages”—and will be represented by SAIL Council Member and Marketing Team Leader Jane Earl and SAIL Executive Director Ann Albert.
