Someone turns 65 every 8 seconds in this country, and as our elderly population grows, so does the need to build an economy around our future selves. In this episode, three leaders in the age justice movement share their ideas about how we can age with dignity, power, and change our society to reflect just that. Then we visit the largest home care cooperative in the U.S. to take a look at age justice, and worker justice, in practice. Music featured “A Minute” by Janine Lyons from her album “Epiphany” released on Honeycomb Music.
