Gray Panthers was proudly represented by Brendan Birth, Gray Panthers Steering Committee member, at the gala for Metro New York Health Care for All http://www.metrohealthcare.net/. Their mission of Community Groups, Labor Unions, Professional Organizations, Faith Communities, and Individuals Fighting Together for Universal Health Care is closely aligned with our advocacy in the health care arena. We aim to ensure confront the ageist programs and policies which seek to eliminate affordable and complete health care options for older persons and for those who are unable to afford adequate care. Proudly, we stand with Metro New York Health Care for All. We look forward to working closely together in the coming year, given the desired desecration of Medicare, Medicaid, the ACA, private insurance and other programs vital for the health of older persons.

Please call these Senators ASAP to urge each of them to vote NO on the current "tax reform" bill in the US Senate

Gray Panthers, like so many others, realize that the current "tax reform" bill in the US House and Senate is more than detestable.  It is designed to destroy the safety net for all those in need, and to enrich those who already have more than enough.
