Age of Dignnity

Every day, 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 years old. In the face of this “elder boom,” how can we make caring for seniors a priority while creating millions of good jobs in the process? How can we view this demographic shift as a positive opportunity rather than a costly crisis?

Join New America and Caring Across America for a candid conversation pivoting off of National Domestic Workers Alliance Director Ai Jen Poo's new book, The Age of Dignity, about the challenges facing our aging population– and the innovative solutions that could benefit all of us.
