How will you work to create the world you envision?
Gray Panthers believe in active engagement. We believe civic participation and responsibility are fundamental to achieving social and economic justice and peace.
We work to:
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.
Creating a single-payer, universal health care system
Protecting the environment
Promoting peace and international human rights

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.

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.
Here are the direct-dial numbers for the seven Republican Senators who are currently undecided on the GOP tax bill. Please call ASAP to urge each of them to vote NO for us. The vote will occur this week.
