"In recent decades, we’ve made a lot of progress against sexism, racism, and homophobia. It’s high time to add ageism to that toxic mix and mobilize against it. What better way to do so than to come together in the streets of San Francisco on September 15 to March for Age Equality. Be there!", Ashton Applewhite

"Recognizing, acknowledging and fighting ageism is imperative in America. We need to stand for the unique value of each person regardless of sex, race or AGE! Elder rights are human rights.", Renee McKenna

"Social connection is at the center of what is means to live and age well. It one of the strongest predictors of longevity. Those who enter midlife and feel it as a time of rebirth & growth are the ones who nurtured their connections to themselves, their families, their partners and their communities throughout the decades of getting there. What lives at the crux as some of the most defining & pivotal connections are those intergenerational ones; those that are reciprocal, non judgmental and inspiring. Intergenerational connections offer a unique two sided window to the truths and wisdom of a life well lived, well loved & how to evolve both to be young at heart & old in soul. The Age March does just this. It is an ideal example of how to connect intergenerationally and the kind of initiative that can empower & inspire people regardless of age" Brittany Fleck
