Location: Mile Hi Church
Address: 9077 W Alameda Ave, Lakewood, CO 80226

Either way, it reduces opportunities and diminishes us all. So, we’re hosting a facilitated conversation, with the goal of increasing awareness of ageism and encouraging all of us to take action to address it. We’d love to have you participate. Please register online.
