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

The Chair of the Green Party of Pennsylvania (GPPA) expressed both disappointment and encouragement in response to the 2018 election. "I thought the election results were discouraging after all the work our many volunteers put into these campaigns," said Sheri Miller, Green Party Chair. "However, our Congressional and State Assembly candidates did well in races with only one opponent, leading me to believe that fear of the greater evil was the biggest factor in voters' minds." "As in previous election cycles," continued Miller, "Green campaigns faced many obstacles. The mainstream press essentially ignored our campaigns; however we were surprisingly pleased by the excellent coverage by some more local press and alternative media outlets."Continue reading
Great news! Today we ended our recount lawsuit in the state of Pennsylvania with a settlement guaranteeing that Pennsylvania will provide new voting systems using paper ballots by 2020, followed in 2022 by automatic audits after every election to confirm the accuracy of the vote before results are certified. This is a critical victory for everyone concerned with the integrity of our elections, and we accomplished it together. Please help build the momentum for elections we can trust by sharing this great news on Facebook and Twitter!Continue reading
The Green Party of the United States expresses its outrage over the recent tear gas and rubber bullet attack on immigrants seeking legal asylum, as authorized by U.S. law, causing severe injury to asylees and creating mayhem in what should be an orderly process of intake and application. Further, as a party of peace, we call for the immediate suspension of the tear gas attacks being launched over the border with Mexico, as this action constitutes unprovoked aggression against a sovereign nation and may be classified as an act of war.Continue reading

US Green Party Representatives Deliver Call for Full Investigation of Israel's War Crimes Against Palestinians to International Criminal CourtThe Hague, The Netherlands – Members of the Green Party of the United States traveled to the International Criminal Court (ICC) today to deliver a letter calling for a full investigation of Israel for war crimes it has committed against the Palestinians. In addition to being endorsed by the Green Party U.S., the letter was signed by over 1,000 organizations and individuals from the United States who want prosecutors at the ICC and the world to know that there is a political party and there are people in the U.S. who support holding nations accountable to international law. "The United States is complicit in Israel's crimes by providing financial support, selling weapons and providing political cover to Israel. Unlike the major political parties, the Green Party opposes these actions and has the courage to make this opposition official," said Dr. Margaret Flowers, Green Party U.S. co-chair.Continue reading
The Green Party gained ballot status in Massachusetts and maintained ballot status in Connecticut, the District of Columbia (DC), Michigan, and New York. In DC, Massachusetts and Michigan, multiple candidates got the required votes for ballot status, and Howie Hawkins broke a New York record by winning the ballot line for a third party in three consecutive gubernatorial elections. The Green Party lost ballot lines in Arizona, Maryland and Ohio based on the number of votes in the gubernatorial races; however, these races energized members, promoted public discussion of Green Party positions, and set the stage for future wins. The total number of states where the Green Party currently has ballot lines is 19 plus DC. Candidates can run in other states by petitioning to get on the ballot.Continue reading
We are pleased to announce that in the November 6th statewide election, the Green-Rainbow Party (GRP) statewide candidates earned enough votes to be formally recognized as an official party in the state of Massachusetts. The GRP expects to receive its elevated status later this month once the results are fully certified by the Secretary of the Commonwealth. Altogether, more than one hundred thousand voters chose Green-Rainbow in this election. "I think people are tired of fear-mongering and the failings created by today's divisive two-party system," said Juan Sanchez, the GRP candidate for Secretary of State and the first Puerto Rican to qualify for inclusion on the state ballot. "In Massachusetts, voters are extremely independent-minded. They really responded to our inclusive, grassroots campaign and my progressive stance on voter and election reform."Continue reading
It has come to my attention that today I became the unwitting, unwilling "beneficiary" of a Republican PAC in Texas that has delivered $49,000 worth of mailers, robocalls, and social media ads exclusively to registered Democrats in New York's 19th Congressional District, attacking Antonio Delgado, and comparing him unfavorably to me. This expenditure is almost 50 times my total advertising budget. The messages are not from me, my campaign, or any PAC supporting me. They are not from the Green Party or any PAC supporting us. They are from Republicans (details below).Continue reading
It came to the attention of our campaign Friday afternoon that unauthorized mailers are being distributed via a Super-PAC with ties to the Republican Party of Michigan. Thanks to the excellent reporting at Eclectablog, the funding for these mailers were funneled through three separate Super-PACs, in a manner most banks would consider to be laundering money. Not only do these mailers imply our campaign has the support of Bernie Sanders, who has already stumped and endorsed one of our opponents, but they also imply that the Super-PAC itself supports our campaign.Continue reading
Why I'm Green
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 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.

I joined the Green Party because it is a party of, by, and for the people. It is staffed by volunteers and regular folks from all walks of life. It is funded entirely by average people giving small donations. It fights for universal healthcare, a Green New Deal, free higher education and other progressive policies that our country desperately needs. The Green Party is a party I can trust to take my concerns seriously and to follow through on its promises.
You may not know this from mainstream media coverage, but the Green Party is overwhelmingly popular among us Millennials. 71% of Millennials think we need a third party, and not just any third party will do.
