Senator Krueger's Virtual Town Hall:
Ageism and Ableism in the Time of COVID
On Thursday, August 6th from 7pm – 8 pm, join Senator Krueger, internationally recognized ageism expert Ashton Applewhite, and disability rights advocate Peter Slatin, President and Founder of the Slatin Group, for a conversation about the connection between ageism and ableism (discrimination in favor of able-bodied people), in the time of COVID-19. Is our fear of contagion, catching something from older people or people with disabilities, making them feel even more isolated and vulnerable? What can be done to change the framework and to increase social access for these marginalized groups?
