Who We Are
Grandparents for Social Action is a movement of grandparents and active seniors learning and sharing their roots in social action with their grandchildren. Founded by Executive Director Sharon Morton, a retired religious educator with decades of experience in social action training, Grandparents for Social Action began in the Chicago suburbs and has grown nationwide.
GSA is a driving force in the growth of our grandchildren’s social identities, and we are a positive influence carrying on generations-old traditions on to our newest generation.
With readership and participation in the hundreds and rapidly growing, we hope to be a meaningful resource for finding innovative ways to make the world a better place.
What We Do
Grandparents for Social Action develops speaking engagements and social action workshops around the US for grandparents and grandchildren to bond and learn together.
GSA also features social action trips, both close to home and long-distance, to build memories while developing hands-on learning and service for grandchildren and grandparents alike.
GSA showcases interesting and current opportunities for social action in the world around us.
We explore new, fun, and innovative ways to help with the ever-ongoing mitzvah of Tikkun Olam—healing the world.
We are Grandparents for Social Action. We are grandparents, mentors, activists, citizens, and friends.

We are energized by our responsibilities and privileges rooted in our heritage to make social action and carry on traditions from generation to generation.
