Friday Feb 12. CAUS at Granny Power film in Toronto

Follow several passionate,
activist grandmothers as they fight for peace, social justice and the environment!

With disarming smiles, biting lyrics, flowery hats, and a gift for inventive, off-the-wall protest, they challenge authorities and stereotypes alike. Their movement, started in Canada 28 years ago, has become international. They are deflating clichés about aging and proving that life can be lived to its fullest, in a meaningful way, to the end. They show up, invited or not, at demonstrations, rallies and political events. They are the Raging Grannies, and they fight for peace, social justice and the environment.

Followed by a discussion on senior’s activism and advocating for senior’s issues:

Phyllis Creighton – one of the original Toronto Raging Grannies

Sheila Neysmith – professor of Social Work (emerita), U of Toronto

John Anderson – coordinator, Canadian Alliance of United Seniors
