The U.S. Transhumanist Party is pleased to share this message and video from our allies at LEAF – the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation. The video includes a short clip of remarks from U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II, taken from his video for the “I am the Lifespan” campaign.


As you might remember, during the month of October (often called Longevity Month) we at LEAF were accepting videos to hear your reasons why defeating the diseases of aging is so important — and hear from you we did!

Dozens of videos poured in, and this #GivingTuesday we at LEAF are so proud to share with you all a video that shows how strong we can be when we join forces for longer, healthier lives — how together #WeAreTheLifespan.

Thank you so much for raising your voice with us in support of longevity research, and if you wish to continue to help us please feel free to join our Hero campaign or to participate in Facebook’s #GivingTuesday donation match by clicking any of the donate buttons on our Facebook page or posts. If you want to get creative, you can even make your own fundraisers easily on Facebook on posts or with a live video.

Finally, to illustrate the importance of speaking freely on what you care about, we are pleased to let you know of the developments related to the recent Open Consultation on the 13th draft programme of work of the WHO. As we wrote not long ago, the problems related to population aging and corresponding health and social issues were left out of the draft, and we invited the members of the community to step in and recommend an improvement.

90% of responses during the Open Consultation (out of around 400 responses) underlined the need to make healthy longevity one of the priorities for the 13th programme of work, and the WHO have recognized this. A joint effort of many pro-longevity organizations made that happen.

Each voice matters. Your voice matters. So please, keep being active and vocal, and let’s become the generation who can say: “I helped set all people free from age-related diseases. I helped defeat aging.”

Thank you, and happy #GivingTuesday!
