Aging in the US: The Next Civil Rights Movement? – Philadelphia, PA

Temple Law School and theĀ  Temple Political and Civil Rights Law Review host Aging in the US: The Next Civil Rights Movement? Oct. 22, 2011.

In this Symposium, we explore elder law and aging policy from a civil rights perspective and begin the important task of rethinking equality across the lifespan. Over twenty leading scholars and advocates will engage cutting edge public policy issues regarding health care, guardianships, caregiving, institutionalized elders, and the special needs of minority populations. The goal of the Symposium is to move the national conversation surrounding aging beyond the traditional elder law topics of estate planning, benefit eligibility, and health care financing and ask whether elder rights should be the next civil rights movement.
