Mission Statement

Just Elders is an intercultural, interfaith, and values-based movement of people over the age of 50 who will utilize both traditional relational organizing and the newer tools of social media in the struggle for the Beloved Community.

We value radical inclusion, shared power, nonviolence, and action rooted in our various faith traditions.

We celebrate life and resist all its degradation such as racism, sexism, heterosexism, xenophobia, environmental ruin, and a culture that elevates profit over the common good.

Seasoned in the struggle for social justice, we seek authentic democracy with a broad sharing of power centered in grassroots communities and manifest in social, political and economic justice.
