Follow the Latest News from our 2018 Green Party candidates

Proud to endorse our candidates

As a founder of the Green-Rainbow Party, I am proud to endorse three special Green-Rainbow candidates who are running for statewide office! Jamie Guerin, a mother of five, is running for Massachusetts Treasurer. She is a long-time peace and environmental activist. She is a passionate advocate for economic justice policies that benefit the 99%. She will establish a state bank that would keep Massachusetts money in Massachusetts, and benefit municipalities with lower interest rates for infrastructure improvement borrowing. She will ensure that the growing cannabis industry is open to participation by lower income people and people of color. Continue reading

We're voting for Laura Wells for Congress & here’s why!

Here are some of the reasons why people are voting outside the status-quo box in 2018. Continue reading

Kahn will fight for hydrogen fuel

Climate change is real. The latest report from the United Nations concludes we have 12 years to make significant changes before our way of life disappears. Dr. Lynn Kahn (G – Schroon Lake), a congressional candidate for NY-21, is brutally honest. “Climate change means more killer hurricanes, longer droughts, worse crop failures, new diseases and super bugs while centuries-old bacteria thaw out and infect us once again. This is Zero Hour for Mother Earth and we have run out of time.” Continue reading

Green-Rainbow Candidate, Jamie Guerin, Barred from Participating in WGBH Debate for State Treasurer

October 10, 2018 – Today’s State Treasurer debate will be missing a key voice from a balloted candidate, that of Jamie Guerin, a long-time activist and Green-Rainbow Party member. Her "Why not invest in ourselves?" platform offers a concrete plan for reducing interest expenses on infrastructure projects, creating a socially just state investment program; a state bank, and eliminating corporate and Wall Street influence in Massachusetts politics. In fact, she herself does not accept donations from lobbyists or corporations that use them. Continue reading

Governor by excluding the only two female and non-major-party candidates who have legally qualified to be on the General Election Ballot.The Green Party's Jocolyn Bowser-Bostick and the Libertarian Party's Kathleen Smith deserved to share the stage and to promote their views and creative solutions to some of PA's dire problems, alongside Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Jeff Bartos.

This isn't justice

On Saturday, the U.S. Senate made a terrible mistake that will harm all of us. The Senate confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to a lifetime position as a Justice for the U.S. Supreme Court. Making this undemocratic decision even worse, the Senators who voted in favor of the confirmation voted in favor of party and against the interest of the majority of their constituents.
