By 2030, 1 in 5 New Yorkers will be over 60. That is a significant increase and provides an opportunity to change the way we view aging in New York!

Ageism, the discrimination and invisibility of older adults is a reality that impacts older New Yorkers every day and is embedded in politics and institutions.

The issues that are impacted by ageist attitudes during the NYC budget process, include; Access to Services, Caregiving, Cultural Competence, Disability, Economic Security, Elder Abuse, Healthcare, Housing, Hunger, Mental Health, Social Isolation, and Transportation.
