Create a humane society – one that puts the needs of people over profits, responsibility over power and democracy over institutions.
Eliminate injustice, discrimination, ageism wherever they exist.
Bring together young and old, women and men of all backgrounds and orientations, to work in unison, with mutual trust and respect.
Make your voice heard!
Gray Panthers work together on the issues you believe in.

This event will tackle a highly important issue that has remained relatively camouflaged from the public eye, elder abuse. Although elder abuse has been on the rise, it has not received nearly as much attention as it should. We not only see elder abuse as a direct result of ageism, but as one of the worst forms of ageist exploitation.
Our distinguished panel will be facilitated by Bobbie Sackman, MSW, Former Director of Public Policy, LiveOn NY. Speakers will include:
Sergeant Joseph Ahohan, NYPD Chief of Department Domestic Violence Investigations
Jason Myles Clark, Assistant Attorney General, Harlem Regional Office of Office of New York State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman
Laura J. Ehrich, Associate State Director, AARP New York
Martha H. Pollack, LCSW-R, JASA Manhattan District Director & Director of Elder Abuse Programs
Victoria Thornton, Volunteer Coordinator, LiveOn NY Senior Medicare Patrol
