WE ARE AGE AND YOUTH IN ACTION!
The Gray Panthers of Berkeley and the East Bay has been a local network of the national Gray Panthers movement since 1972.
We organize and educate to support essential basic rights of affordable housing, the homeless, healthcare, education, civil rights, the environment, climate change, immigration, transportation and progressive politics as well as other issues of importance to our members.

- Honoring Maturity: The concept of aging takes into account an individual's growth during their entire lifespan, from birth to death in personal development, social involvement, and self fulfillment.
- Unifying the Generations: Recognition that generations are formed by different histories and cultures, but a common respect holds them together.
- Active Engagement: Civic participation and responsibility are fundamental to achieving goals of social and economic justice.
- Participatory Democracy: The Gray Panthers belongs to its members. The members define the organization’s values, purpose, and the issues in which we place collective energy.
The Board manages business for the organization most Wednesday afternoons on Zoom, and has a member meeting monthly; see our calendar.
