Many of our local allies joined us at this march that led us through the streets of San Jose to the Santa Clara County Jail.
GPSCC August 24th Meeting Minutes
We meet on the 4th Thursday of the month at the San Jose Peace and Justice Center at #48, S. 7th St from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Our chapter's mission is: Strengthen and expand the Green Party membership, candidates, political capital, credibility and visibility in Santa Clara County and contribute to the growth of GPCA and GPUS.
CAN WE MAKE IT??
Our planet is on the verge of irreversible climate damage and habitat destruction. It is easy to get discouraged and just want to sit it out. We think THAT is just not an option.
Working together in the Green Party, we can reverse course. Join us, REGISTER GREEN!
WHY A THIRD PARTY?
Because we all know our system is broken and it's up to us to fix it. Our Corporate-dominated duopoly is not the solution, we are! Green, clean and corporate-free candidates who serve the people.
