Call for end to ageism

The Head of the Barbados Association of Retired Persons is calling for an end to the discriminatory practice of ageism.

Ageism is prejudice on the grounds of a person’s age and President Marilyn Rice-Bowen says it must stop.

She was speaking during a service to mark the 24th anniversary of BARP at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Black Rock.

After the service Ms. Rice-Bowen revealed that they will be embarking on a major outreach exercise to increase their membership which now stands at twenty-seven thousand.
