International Federation on Ageing and Age Friendly Communities

As most of you know, ageism drives me nuts. I'm especially appalled by people treating others poorly because they're seen as 'old' (actually meaning too old) for whatever reason. But I'm not happy about the opposite end of this, either -- when youth is treated as having no rights because of their young age...

I'll be keeping an eye out for other good resources. The two sites above deal with advanced age and seem pretty good to me (if rather new and under-developed). Anyway, resource sites are always a good thing.
