Speakers Bureau

speakers-bureau-logoGreen Party speakers offer a provocative counterpoint to the status quo. Whether speaking about universal, single-payer health care, support for local economies, immediate withdrawal from Iraq, or other pressing concerns, our speakers provide expert analysis and solutions.

Green Party speakers include elected officials, political candidates, grassroots activists, and everyday people who chose to become part of the solution. Committed to environmentalism, nonviolence, and social justice, Greens are renewing democracy without the support of corporate money. Contact us today to schedule a Green Party speaker for your show or event.
