We have come together to bolster support to our leading cause this week through the International Global campaign for the Rights of Older Persons, now underway (April 29th through May 20th, 2024).

As we approach the pivotal United Nations Open-Ended Working Group on Ageism, Session 14, in mid May 2024 it is more important than ever for us to engage proactively with our elected representatives.

I urge you to contact your elected officials and encourage their support for the establishment of a UN Convention on the Rights of Older Persons. This convention is vital for ensuring that the dignity and rights of older individuals are recognized and protected globally.
