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.

We demand public financing of elections, open debates, and more representative voting systems.

...and our ten key values

    Greens Invite Progressives, Activists, & Voters to Meeting in Glassboro On Oct. 3rd

    Join your fellow progressive neighbors in Gloucester County, New Jersey and learn how we can build the Green Party in our area. The Green Party is growing rapidly in New Jersey, and we are forming local chapters across the state that can organize and take the bold steps needed to end the domination of the 2 corporate parties. At this meeting, we will also be recruiting volunteers for Jill Stein's presidential campaign. Jill is the only candidate who puts people over profits every time. She’s also the only candidate in the race that stands with the American voter on common-sense policies including:

    Green Party of NJ joins Jill Stein's protest at closed presidential debate

    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.

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.
