Who can join?
If you identify as a woman and are over the age of 50, you are invited to join. The important thing is that you are ready to rage with us!
Do I have to be a grandmother?
No. Many of us do not have grandchildren. But we do all care about the future of children and youth!
Do I have to be able to sing?
No. If you hear us, you’ll know we are not a singing group. We are not performers. We do use song, dance, and street theater in support of peace, social justice, human rights, and environmental protection. We do have many members who are singers, and their strong voices help our messages get heard.
How do I become a Raging Granny?
Come to a meeting and introduce yourself. You will be assigned a mentor. After you attend two meetings, one action, and pay your dues, you’ll become a full member.
Why do you wear those hats, aprons, and so on?
We wear those items to play with and appropriate the image of the stereotypical grandmother. The outrageous hats are used by members of Raging Granny gaggles (what we call a group) in the United States and internationally. It’s one the things that helps people recognize us in a crowd.
How much does it cost?
Our dues are $3 per month. We collect the dues once a year in July and prorate for those who join throughout the year. We offer scholarships for those for whom paying dues would be a hardship. We want all to rage with us! If you need a scholarship, speak privately to our treasurer when you join.
