While the Green Party won't be selecting our presidential nominee until July of 2020, the race for the 2020 Green Party presidential nomination has already begun. The Presidential Campaign Support Committee has published the documentation for those seeking our nomination. The PCSC also maintains a document listing those seeking our nomination.
They are Sedinam Moyowasifza-Curry, Howie Hawkins, Dario Hunter, Dennis Lambert, David Rolde,
Susan Buchser Lochocki,
Kent Mesplay and Chad Wilson.
Submitted questionnaires by the candidates are available here.
The national Green Party is committed to maintaining a neutral stance towards those seeking our nomination. The individual campaigns are responsible for supplying the material that appears below and a posting does not imply endorsement or approval of the content by any Green Party entity.
A new page has been created listing past forums of our 2020 Presidential Candidates. As new events are scheduled, they will be listed here as soon as possible.
This is the first episode dedicated to my platform
End All Wars is a moral call to action in achieving peace and prosperity for humanity.
Dennis Lambert is running for president in 2020 trying to get the Green Party nomination. Dennis will outline his objectives and issues he believes are important to the American people, discuss his policies and platform with friends, and other people he meets. Once a week Dennis will update you on his events, travels, and ideas while on the campaign trail. More information on the campaign is at www.dlpotus2020.com
Howie Hawkins demanding No War With Iran or Iraq at a Syracuse peace demonstration co-sponsored by the Green Party of Onondaga County
"We mobilize (against war) ... we can't just mobilize the usual suspects, we gotta organize so that next time we have more people, and after that more people, and whoever's in office hears from us and can't sleep because we won't let them sleep! We won't let them have peace until we really have peace!"
Dennis Lambert has done a lot between the Annual National Meeting of the Green Party til today.
To get started, Dennis was able to start pulling together a staff to help with fundraising, campaign management, and a treasurer. Next we filed with the FEC and the Green Party Presidential Campaign Support Committee for recognition from both entities.
As a candidate for the 2020 Green Party U.S. Presidential nomination, one of the main issues that I have been focusing on is calling for the U.S. military to be totally eliminated. The GPUS and the Green Party Presidential nominee should be calling for the U.S. military budget to be reduced to zero, not just cut by 50% or some other arbitrary amount. I have been an anti-imperialist anti-war activist for at least 18 years. Elimination of the U.S. military has been my political position (and the position of many other anti-imperialist anti-war activists who I work with) for a long time since before I ever thought of running for the GPUS Presidential nomination.
It is time for the public to take back control of the Internet, a technology that was created with public dollars, so it serves the people’s interests. Under President Trump, there have been backward steps for the Internet and mass communication. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has always been corporate occupied territory. The next president needs to appoint commissioners who represent the public interest, not the corporate interests of telecoms.

The Dennis Lambert for President 2020 campaign believes in the equality of all people. Our campaign is dedicated to helping the people achieve a truly democratic society.
US auto workers have shut down General Motors. I support the strike of 48,000 General Motors workers who walked out at midnight Sunday evening. The shutdown of 35 manufacturing facilities in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Kansas, Texas and New York will cost GM as much as $400 million in lost production each day.
GM is demanding big concessions: more worker payments for health care, a raise below the rate of inflation, and no change to the union- and solidarity-destroying system of tiers that allows the company to hire second-class workers as lower-paid temps with no contract rights.
One step further for legitimacy...
The FEC has recognized the Dennis Lambert for President 2020 campaign.
We filed paperwork with the Green Party of the United States and got recognition as a candidate in May of 2018.
We sent in the questionnaire to the Green Party Presidential Campaign Support Committee in July and got an acknowledgement of receipt.
Dario Hunter of Youngstown, Ohio has just become officially recognized by the Green Party as a candidate for the 2020 Green Party presidential nomination.
Hunter was born in New Jersey to an African-American mother and Persian father. He is a graduate of Princeton University and has three law degrees. He has taught as a high school English teacher, served as a K-8 school administrator and as a community college instructor. Hunter serves as a member of the Youngstown Board of Education. He has practiced law in Canada and worked as an international environmental lawyer. He has also served as a rabbi, providing religious services to the Youngstown community.
Today I signed the Sunrise Movement's No Fossil Fuel Money pledge.
The pledge reads: "I pledge to not take contributions from the oil, gas, and coal industry and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits."
The Sunrise Movement explains: "Taking the pledge means that a candidate's campaign will adopt a policy to not knowingly accept any contributions over $200 from the PACs, executives, or front groups of fossil fuel companies — companies whose primary business is the extraction, processing, distribution, or sale of oil, gas, or coal. We will provide a list of these companies upon request."
