July 11, 2022 | The Chicago Tribune published an op-ed on ageism by Village CEO Darcy Evon and Tom Kuczmarski, co-founder of Chicago Innovation: “Here’s the thing about ageism. It’s not always malicious, but it hurts. Is there anyone who would say that we don’t want everyone, no matter what their age, to participate fully and to the best of their ability in American society?

“Yet in this nation, the idea of living to your fullest potential seems to stop when a person is seen as “older.” Everyone is getting older — all day, every day. So where’s the logic in age bias, even if it’s well-meaning, against those of us who get older before we do?”
