Nevada City/Grass Valley

Shirley Freriks

The Nevada City/Grass Valley Elder Action Circle was formed in January 2020 as a combination of EAN and ECA. We begin with the values and principles espoused by EAN and go from there into some climate work now, specifically recycling and reducing single-use plastics, and later some of the attendant concerns around environmental social justice and sustainability. They are all related and exacerbated by the climate concerns of today. We are also working with the Nevada County Media Center to co-produce a monthly speaker series on a variety of climate related topics. Currently we are meeting from 4:00-5:30pm on the second Sunday of the month at the Helling Library community room. See you soon!

Palo Alto/Bay Area

Geoff Ainscow

The Palo Alto/Bay Area Elder Action Circle meets biweekly via Zoom, and once a quarter we gather in person in one of our homes. It can be said that we work together separately — while we each have our own ways in which we actively work for a better world, we come together to plumb the depths of our inner life. The close relationships formed in the group produce companionship, a brotherhood/sisterhood, and bring meaning to our lives.

San Mateo/Bay Area

Karen Fine
Libby Traubman

The San Mateo/Bay Area Elder Action Circle, now in its fourth year, has eight participants who meet monthly for a potluck dinner, personal sharing, and updating of our varied activities. We share lessons learned from our successes and failures and support each other as we work to be of service in our local communities and beyond.

Colorado

Denver

Jackie Burson

The Centennial Colorado Elder Action Circle has been together for about two years. We meet about once a month. Sometimes we meet at a restaurant and other times in a room at the local library. We are into different things as individuals — this includes volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, attending political rallies and volunteering for Angel Heart food delivery. During our meetings we discuss issues that affect us all, report on what we are doing now and talk about our ideas for what else we might do. We are open to new members.

Durango

Robert ‘Han’ Bishop

The Durango Elder Action Circle is an ongoing gathering of elder men and women who understand that a lifetime of experience, lessons learned and knowledge gained, gives them wisdom worth sharing with others. We take opportunities together to share and explore topics relevant to elderhood. We come together to share and deepen the wisdom we’ve learned, enrich the lives of each other, and in turn, do so for our families, friends, community, and even the world-at large. We meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month (10:30am at Pine River Library).

Oregon

Portland

Melissa Ribner

The Portland Elder Action Circle is newly formed; we have loosely agreed to explore a range of topics relating to elderhood. There are currently seven members, with room to grow to ten (maximum). We are all active in a variety of projects, which enrich our discussions. We meet monthly.

Pennsylvania

Philadelphia

Lynne Iser

The Philadelphia Elder Action Circle meets to attend rallies, hearings and other events together and to discuss local issues and ways in which to respond, individually or together. This is an open group and people can join at any time, or just show up.
