Old School is a clearinghouse of free and carefully vetted resources to educate people about ageism and help dismantle it. You’ll find blogs, books, articles, videos, speakers, and other tools (workshops, handouts, curricula etc.) that are accessible to the general public. Our goal is to help catalyze a movement to make ageism (discrimination on the basis of age) as unacceptable as any other kind of prejudice.
This clearinghouse is the brainchild of anti-ageism activist Ashton Applewhite of This Chair Rocks, who created it with Ryan Backer and Kyrié Carpenter. For more about us, read The Story of Old School.
Old School is an ongoing, interdisciplinary collaboration that will only reach its potential with help from the pro-aging community. This means you! If you have an ageism-related resource to contribute to Old School – not about positive aging or productive aging or healthy aging or conscious aging or creative aging, but explicitly focused on ageism – please use this form to get in touch.
