Intergenerational Equity Framework

Intergenerational equity is the practice of treating everyone fairly and justly regardless of age, with special consideration to the structural factors that privilege some age groups over others. At Everyday Democracy, we value intergenerational equity. We recognize that people of all ages can be and deserve to be engaged. Engagement may look different depending on age, but we need everyone, working together across the generations, if we are going to achieve sustainable community change.

Organizations, community groups, and grass-roots leaders across the country are looking for ways to address intersectional oppressions and build authentic collective leadership. We need intergenerational equity, along with racial equity, to build communities that work for those most marginalized and ultimately that work for everyone.
