Our mission: In the tradition of wise women elders, the mission of the Western Mass Raging Grannies is to promote global peace, justice, and social and economic equality by raising public awareness through the medium of song and humor. Our goal is to challenge our audiences to work to bring about the social changes that are required in order to end economic oppression, particularly of women and children, and to end racial inequality, environmental destruction, human rights violations, and arms proliferation. We use tunes of old songs and write lyrics to fit what we sing about. We are challenged to keep step with current issues.
What are we raging about? We are enraged about the poor conditions that people are forced to endure in their lives, and about the condition of the earth that will be left to our precious grandchildren. We sing out to gain respect for all persons and encourage everyone to grow above their prejudices. We rage against “corporate greed” and sing for “one world” in which JUSTICE is evident everywhere and PEACE reigns.
