Radical Elders in Action

We ain’t done yet!

Summer of Heat • Elders Week! • July 8 – 13, 2024

We have been at a number of Summer of Heat events, not just during Elders Week, but all summer long! Join Stop the Money Pipeline, New York Communities for Change, Third Act, and more to be sure that Citigroup gets the message: stop funding fossil fuels!

Radical Elders (including Ana Juarbe, Ted Glick and Angel Roman) joined Climate activists from the elder group Third Act who held a mock-funeral in front of Citibank’s headquarters in Manhattan to protest the climate crisis on Monday, July 8.

Third Act  said it was “demanding that #WallStreet​ banks and financiers stop using our hard-earned retirement savings to fund the #climatecrisis​,” calling Citibank “the world’s biggest funder of fossil fuel expansion.”

A delegation of some 20 members of Radical Elders assembled at the main gate to Columbia University at 12 noon on April 30th at 116th Street and Broadway. We remained for several hours after making a statement in support of the students inside the University’s locked-down main quad.
