Turn The Page On Age

Imagine a world in which everyone’s abilities are accepted at face value; where skills and strengths are appreciated and utilized without reservation; and where no one is excluded because they are too young, or too old.

That’s a world that has “turned the page on age.”

With funding from the RRF Foundation, The Village Chicago and Chicago Innovation have teamed up to help dismantle age bias with an exciting city-wide campaign, “Turn the Page on Age.”
