 NEW AMERICA MEDIA INVITES YOU TO AN INTERGENERATIONAL SUMMIT
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.

- Jacinda Abcarlan (Youth Radio)
- Randella Bluehouse (NICOA National Indian Council on Aging)
- Donna Butts (Generations United)
- Jennie Chin Hansen (AARP)
