Left Forum Group Ticket Purchase With GPNY Now Online
Attend this year's LEFT FORUM in NYC (June 2-4) for the low, low price price of only $35 for all three days when you join GPNY's group ticket purchase! That's almost half of the standard price for a weekend ticket. This group ticket purchase is open to Greens and allies so feel free spread the word in your online and offline communities.
GPNY has provided this service since 2011, along with other ways to promote and encourage Green participation in Left Forum. We don't keep any money from your purchase, you just pay $35 plus a small transaction fee to the payment processor.
We'll be announcing ways to connect with Greens from around the country that weekend.
