Changes for Gray Panthers
Change is nothing new to Gray Panthers. For more than four decades, we’ve fought to create change around issues of social and economic justice. Now we’re informing our members, friends, supporters and allies about a change in the Gray Panthers Project Fund itself.
What’s happening. The Gray Panthers Project Fund is the legal, tax-exempt entity that coordinates our national and international advocacy, provides leadership and support for local Gray Panthers networks, sends out action alerts, and more. Despite our best efforts, and the contributions of dedicated Gray Panthers like you, the Board has come to the conclusion that the Gray Panthers Project Fund is unsustainable and must be dissolved.
What it means for you. This does not mean an end to the Gray Panthers, our vision, or our advocacy! Networks will continue to use the Gray Panthers name to carry on local, national, and international social justice activities—and we urge you to do so, too. If you are not a member of a local network, we encourage you to find—or create!—a local network where you can work with others to achieve economic and social justice.

Support the Robin Hood Tax on Wall Street!
Gray Panthers is supporting fighting back against Wall Street and standing up for the 99% and has signed on as a sponsor of the Robin Hood Tax Campaign. We believe that banks, hedge funds and the rest of the financial sector should pay their fair share to clear up the mess they helped create. While our country continues to struggle to recover economically, the Robin Hood Tax serves as a fair and simple solution to help America get back on its feet. Support the Robin Hood Tax Campaign by telling your U.S. leaders you want a Robin Hood Tax on Wall Street!

We strongly encourage you to join the our Action Center to stay updated with all the current issues that we are working on and learn how to take action and have your voice heard!

Help the Gray Panthers Fight Truth Decay!
Our founder, Maggie Kuhn, said we need to be "watchdogs" that bark when danger is near. Gray Panther watchdogs are needed to challenge the many lies that are constantly perpetuated about Social Security & Medicare by opponents who want to dismantle these vital programs. But in order to Fight Truth Decay, you must first arm yourself with the facts.
