We will also support cross-sectional issues such as living wages for essential workers and a comprehensive economic plan that addresses unemployment, enacts a national healthcare service, and puts people to work in jobs that will combat both climate catastrophe and living standard insecurity.

Our country was shaken by the brutal murder of George Floyd in May of 2020. This week on April 19th the jury in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the police officer who knelt on the neck of George Floyd for 9 minutes and 29 seconds, found Chauvin guilty of all three charges of murder and manslaughter.

WARRENVILLE, ILIllinois Green Party (ILGP) members are helping to organize events from Earth Day to May Day to highlight the urgent need for climate change, and to make the connection to the need for overall system change including environmental justice, labor rights and grassroots democracy.

The Greens, who started calling for an ecosocialist Green New Deal in the U.S. in 2010, recently called for Congress to pass a $4.1 trillion a year (for 10 years) green economic stimulus to create 30 million jobs and accelerate the transition to 100% renewable energy from all sources by 2030. Biden is reportedly considering a one-time, $3 trillion green infrastructure stimulus, though only about $400 billion for direct climate measures.

  • Campaign Finance Reform - PROGRESS but we need your input now!

CORVALLIS, OR – YES!  House bill 3343 is getting a lot of traction - it is getting a hearing March 30, 1:00pm - we need to send testimony before the hearing and up to 24 hours after.  

HB 3343 is getting a lot of attention but it is an uphill battle:  moneyed interests, including unions (yes, they are being a bit shortsighted) want to keep the money flowing to influence elections and legislation.
