Picking up where the earlier chapter of the Gray Panthers left off, the Gray Panthers Santa Barbara Network has announced the formation of a new chapter.

The Gray Panthers Santa Barbara Network is a countywide volunteer, intergenerational, social and economic justice organization formed to oppose discrimination against, and oppression of, persons because of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, nationality, class and physical and/or mental challenges.

“We intend to work independently, or in coalition with other movements or organizations, to achieve social and economic justice, a clean sustainable environment, quality health care and decent affordable housing,” said Gail Marshall, media contact for the Gray Panthers.

The Gray Panthers will provide educational programs of interest to older adults and those who share similar concerns; and plan to advocate to change or enhance public policies on the local, state and national level to further the general welfare of people of all ages.
