Low-income older adults face significant barriers both because of their age and other identities. Law and policy play a key role in addressing those barriers and advancing equity for older adults. This webinar will review a forthcoming paper from Justice in Aging entitled, “Fulfilling the Promise of Equity for Older Adults – Opportunities in Law & Policy,” in which we argue that law and policy should address structural ageism and other types of discrimination that intersect with age and compound harmful inequities. This webinar will discuss key policy recommendations to advance equity for older adults in an interactive manner.
Justice in Aging thanks The MolinaCares Accord, whose generosity supports both this webinar and the forthcoming paper.
