Anti-Ageism Activists Protest 7-11 Injustice (Repost from DC)

DC members of the National Youth Rights Association staged a lively picket at 5 PM today in front of a 7-11 in the Takoma Park neighborhood of DC. The protest was in response to the posted policy of that store that banned more than 2 youth from entering the store at one time. Despite crime statistics showing adults commit twice as much shoplifting crimes as youth, this store saw fit to discriminate against a whole class of people just because of their age.
