We stand for age and youth working together to make the world a place where the young can look forward to growing old. We believe all people are entitled to certain fundamental rights.
* Meaningful employment.
* A country free from racism.
* Economic security.
* Decent and affordable housing.
* A world in peace.
* A life of dignity from birth to death, free from fear and abuse.

We are:

* Progressive.
* Environmentalist.
* Anti-racist.
* Anti-war.

We advocate, organize, and endorse positions and actions for peace and social justice, universal health care, electoral reform, non-privatization of public resources, civil rights, human rights, and civil liberties.

We initiated the call for HANDS OFF SOCIAL SECURITY in the SF Bay Area in 2005.

We call for the repeal of the entire 2003 Medicare Modernization Act as well as the Medicare Drug Program, and call for universal, single-payer, single-tier healthcare as the solution to Medicare’s problems.

We propose a human rights amendment to the California constitution, to encourage respect and observance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

We demonstrated with GreenAction and other groups fighting environmental racism to close the PG&E power plant in Hunters Point.

We protested the special registration of immigrants after 9-11, and have demonstrated for immigrants rights and against government raids and other harrassment of immigrants.

We have demonstrated against the Patriot Act and other laws being advanced as part pf a developing police state.

    It’s about time someone stood up for causes like this. Medicare is just one example of the corruption and laziness in Government
