We are grassroots activists, environmentalists, advocates for social justice, nonviolent resisters and regular citizens who’ve had enough of corporate-dominated politics. Government must be part of the solution, but when it’s controlled by the 1%, it’s part of the problem. The longer we wait for change, the harder it gets. Don’t stay home on election day. Vote Green.
Everything we do is based on our four pillars:
Our country's long wars and worldwide military presence are immoral and unsustainable. Our military budget must be cut dramatically.
The human cost of climate change is too high. We need to get off fossil fuels and on to renewable energy.
Falling wages and rising bills are hitting most of us, and the most vulnerable are hit the hardest. We demand a living wage and a real safety net.
...and our ten key values
People power is what we rely on! Sign up here to get on our mailing list and to volunteer. We will pass your information to your state party, as well as keep you informed about opportunities at the national level. Or contact your state party directly.Volunteer
The Green Party of the United States condemns the missile strikes carried out during the early morning of April 14, 2018, ordered by the Trump administration on purported chemical weapon sites in Syria, in flagrant violation of both the U.S. Constitution and international law. In a now signature impetuous style, the Trump administration authorized the airstrikes without first initiating an investigation into claims that last week, Syrian government forces used chemical weapons on the last insurgent outpost in Eastern Ghouta. Additionally, Germany and Italy declined to participate in the airstrikes, demonstrating that the Trump administration also failed to use any diplomatic process before acting.Continue reading

Today memorializes the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King's death was undoubtedly one of the most horrific crimes of the century. 50 years later, while reflecting on his life, we must ask ourselves where are we in reference to what he stood and fought for? Examining many areas that Dr. King battled, we can first look at poverty issues. In 1968, only 10% of whites lived in poverty while almost 34%, if not more of blacks were also devastated. Before he died he began organizing a Poor People's Campaign to dramatize the plight of poor folks in America and to signify that as a collective voice they demanded change and action.Continue reading

A resident of Philadelphia, Glover is a long-time social entrepreneur who has founded 18 campaigns for ecology and justice.

Why I'm Green
I'm Green because I can't take the lies and the conditions anymore. Homelessness while there are empty houses, prisons built while schools close, children being shot down on our streets by police, mothers losing their children to the state because they don't have water in their homes and can't afford the water bill. My friends and family cant afford to wait anymore to try and change the Democratic Party .People who can wait are not familiar with our reality. The one party system is killing our people and it's high time we stand up and say something, and more importantly, change it. It can't change unless we break with the corporations' money and that's exactly what the Green Party is doing. It stands up to dirty money and puts forward the vision of the world we want to live in. We can't wait any more. Building our party now will help to ensure a future for all of our children and generations to come.
When it comes to the interests of Latinx and other people of color, Greens have the best platform in American politics. State by state, Greens are advocating fairness, economic justice, and respect—for all Americans. In recent years many Black and Latinx activists have left Democratic or independent politics, to become Green candidates and party leaders. In my home state of Rhode Island, Greens are active in grassroots movements to end racial profiling and police brutality, protect immigrants' rights, end deportations, and achieve a path to citizenship. I'm Green because from what I can see, the world's only real chance to survive, is through politics grounded in Ecology, Equality, Democracy, and Peace—in other words, Green politics. The mainstream parties are both controlled by big business, and can't help us now. In fact, they're working together against us. Isn't it time you joined the Greens?
I'm Green because I still have hope. Despite all of the pollution, racism, corporate control, money in politics, incarceration -- the list goes on and on -- I still have hope that it can change. I believe it takes a small band of people -- in communities all across the globe -- that stand up and say "enough is enough." The Green Party is that small band and we are ALL across the globe. I am Green because I am not just voting on Election Day. I'm involved all year long and I'm "voting with my feet" by walking away from the corporate-controlled Democratic Party and into the Green Party, where grassroots political action rules the day. Most social movements in this country started small and faced impossible odds. Yet if it can be done. I am Green because I have hope for our small band to grow into a mighty wave.
