FORGING A COMMON AGENDA IN A POLARIZED AMERICA
What: A day-long convening of youth and elder advocates
Where: Atlantic Philanthropies, 75 Varick Street (16th floor), New York.
When: Friday, Sept. 10, 2010 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
Why: In reality, elders and youth -- both often isolated and voiceless -- share urgent concerns.
This summit will explore the depth and strength of their interdependency.
In a time of mounting economic insecurity, government cutbacks and political polarization, it will cut through the either/or rhetoric to forge a common agenda and a commitment to amplifying each other's voices.
