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

Cleveland, OH: The Green Party of Ohio has committed ourselves to having open debates, where all candidates, regardless of party affiliation, have the opportunity to present their case to the voters. The Democratic and Republican Parties have sought to limit debate participation at local, state, and national levels. This penchant for limiting voter choice is evident in this election cycle as the Senatorial candidates of both those parties have decided to hold debates without the participation of the Green Party nominee, Joe DeMare.Continue reading
Indigenous Peoples' Day arrives at a crucial moment this electoral season, as the inspiring indigenous-led movement at Standing Rock continues to draw attention to how the U.S. government systematically violates the rights of Native Americans.

Republican legislatures across the country have been methodically engaging in voter-suppression schemes for the last decade. In recent years their efforts have expanded in a naked attempt to reduce minority and youth electoral participation and preserve conservative majorities in state legislatures and Congress as well as at the local level. These measures include odious voter ID laws, the reduction of early voting periods, the redlining of polling sites to avoid college campuses and minority communities, and the elimination of same-day registration. Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka, Green Party Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates, condemn these partisan maneuvers as toxic to the very concept of democracy and demand an immediate halt to these practices as well as long-term reform to election systems throughout the United States.Continue reading
Cleveland OH: The Green Party of Ohio is urging the voters of Youngstown, Ohio to support Charter Amendment Number 6, otherwise known as the Community Bill of Rights in the election to be held on November 8th. This amendment would codify the right of the citizens of Youngstown to enjoy the benefits of clean water, air and soil and give them the right of local control in matters of the procedure known as fracking and the disposal of wastes that are the end result of fracking. The amendment would ban the city government or any corporation from engaging in fracking or disposing of fracking wastes within the city limits. It would also hold accountable the parties engaging in fracking on properties adjacent to the city of Youngstown, including the Meander Creek Reservoir. This reservoir contains the water supply for the city of Youngstown as well as other area municipalities.Continue reading

The Green Party of New Jersey condemns the decision by the Commission on Presidential Debates to exclude Green Party candidate Jill Stein and other "third-party" candidates from the first debate, to take place on Monday. Democracy requires that we have the diverse range of political perspectives held by the citizens of this country represented on the debate stage. The debates must include candidates, such as Dr. Stein and her running mate Ajamu Baraka, who are not funded and controlled by wealthy corporations and who have the support of diverse working class people across the country. The Stein/Baraka ticket is on the ballot in 45 states, including New Jersey, and is an official write-in option in 3 additional states. The Green Party already had ballot access in 18 states prior to 2016. Dr. Stein gained ballot access in 27 additional states thanks to the tireless efforts of hundreds of petitioners, who collected nearly 250,000 signatures from registered voters nationwide.Continue reading
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.
