Hi!!!! All you wonderful Grans who attended the 2016 UnCon in Seattle last week!
Just think of all that we did together that was absolutely wonderful! We ate, laughed and talked and talked and talked and many of us danced together. We enjoyed the wonderful and informative Plenary Session mostly with the younger generation. They were incredible. And what about that Keynote Speaker! The workshops were timely and seemed to give us all some more tools to use in our ‘granniness.’ We shared an interesting bus ride and lots of greetings from the public while walking through the Pike Place Market and with those wonderful Raging Granny red umbrellas!

Grannies all over the world are devoted to making a difference in this world of ours. We work for peace, social and economic justice and protection of this earth we call home. No small matter. Grannies are courageous elders who care passionately about the future of our global children and grandchild and all species living on Mother Earth. We believe that singing helps to keep peoples spirits alive and makes clear to others why they are standing up against what is happening in their world and that they are not alone.
