“The old, having the benefit of life experience, the time to get things done and the least to lose by sticking their necks out, are in a perfect position to serve as advocates for the larger public good … we must act as the elders of the tribe looking out for the best interests of the future and preserving the precious compact between the generations.”
–Maggie Kuhn, who launched Gray Panthers
We are a network of grandparents and elders who care deeply about the world our descendants will inherit. We have learned that the current plans of energy companies and governments will, if not radically changed, put our grandchildren’s future at risk.
We seek to co-operate and enter into dialogue with others. Where other actions fail, we are prepared to take direct action, in a spirit of non-violence and respect.
