Greater Boulder Green Party Gathering
What's next for the local Green Party?
What are your ideas for increasing the visibility and the influence of the Greens? What do you think are the key issues we should address? What would you like to do to help us grow?
We'll brainstorm and do some planning.
The meeting will also include a 20 minute presentation on voting systems and election law to increase the influence of minor parties (see below).
