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

    Latinx Caucus of the Green Party Statement on Immigrant Rights and Family Separations

    The Latinx Caucus of the Green Party joins the chorus of condemnations of the egregious human rights violations that continue to be perpetrated at the US Mexico border and which have spread throughout America. Through his administration’s hateful policies towards people of color President Donald Trump has shown himself unfit to govern. In removing kids from their mothers and fathers to incarcerate them in “tender age” shelters as a “deterrent” to immigration the Trump administration ignores basic principles of human rights. The very notion that the government of the United States of America would create an infrastructure for the mass removal of children from their parents is a profound human rights violation and a reprehensible affront to the dignity and morality of all Americans.

    July 4: Green Party Says it is Time to Declare Independence from Fossil Fuels

    As New York suffers through a prolonged heat wave this July 4, the Green Party candidates for Governor and State Comptroller reminded New Yorkers of the need to declare independence from fossil fuel companies. The Greens said that New York should become the second state after Rhode Island to file suit against the oil and gas companies for the damage they are causing by driving global warming. New York City has already filed suit. They added that New York should become the first state to commit to halt all new fossil fuel infrastructure and commit to transitioning to 100% clean energy and net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

    PA Greens support Ranked Choice Voting

    The Green Party of Pennsylvania is celebrating Maine's landmark win for representative democracy on June 12th when the citizens approved a measure that adopts ranked choice voting for all state elections. Ranked choice voting, also known as instant runoff voting, allows voters to rank their candidates in order of preference. If no candidate gets at least 50% of the vote, then there is no majority winner. The candidates with very few votes are dropped out and the top candidates continue in an instant runoff process: If a voter's first choice is dropped out, then their second choice receives their vote.

    Green Party Statement on Child Separations in Immigration Cases

    The Green Party of the United States affirms that migration is a human right, and we are outraged by the current situation at the U.S. border regarding the inhumane treatment of children and families seeking refuge from the United States’ imperialist policies visited upon Latin American nations. Greens are not fooled by the games that the Trump administration now seems to be playing with human lives. His executive order today, while a victory for public activism and direct action in general, seems more an attempt to mollify the public and create a legal situation in which current law regarding the maximum time limit for detention could be challenged.

    Portland Greens Condemn ICE

    Portland, OR – The Green Party of Portland condemns the actions of the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for separating families in the name of making our country "great." The removal of children from their parents is traumatic, heartless, and immoral. Despite President Trump's assertions, this is not the way. Despite the assertions of Democrats, they too have a shameful history of supporting deportations. We support the #OccupyICE action and any nonviolent means of resistance against ICE facilities in our community and across the United States.

    Green Party Calls for Action in Response to UN Report on Poverty in the U.S.

    The UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights recently released a damning report on poverty and income inequality conditions in the United States. The report will be presented to the UN Human Rights Council on Thursday, June 21. The Trump administration withdrew the U.S. from the council yesterday, claiming it was "bias[ed]" against Israel, among other reasons. The report pointed out that over 40 million Americans live in conditions of poverty. It also found that the Republican-passed tax cuts bill has already worsened income inequality while it benefits the wealthiest Americans.

Why I'm Green

Photo by Wendy Schreier

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.
