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.

At this point in the nomination process, the following candidates have met basic criteria for official recognition by the Green Party of the United States. They are Howie Hawkins, Dario Hunter and David Rolde.

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.

Social Justice and Equality

One of the Green Party's 10 Key Values is Social Justice and Equal Opportunity. As the White House is working to allow employers to terminate workers for sexual orientation and gender identity, Dennis Lambert and other Greens participated in Toledo Pride this past weekend. Gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion, and immigration status have no impact on job performance and discrimination does not help the job market or the economy and it does not make America great.

Howie Hawkins, calls for 'Climate Emergency," says democratic climate plans are insufficient

Howie Hawkins, who is seeking the Green Party presidential nomination, today urged the next president to declare a Climate Emergency on the first day in office. Hawkins pointed out: "By declaring the climate crisis a national emergency, the president is empowered by existing laws to address the climate crisis without congressional approval. Congressional, presidential, Pentagon and intelligence reports and policy documents have identified climate change as a national security threat since 1990. It is time for immediate action to confront climate chaos." Continue reading

Anti-Racism Anti-White Supremacy

Representation is not reparations. Simply because Barack Obama was President of the United States, it does not mean that racism is over. Repeating this lie is like telling someone to quit playing the Powerball after someone else in their state won.  The ignorance of the elected officials and citizens who repeat this idea are representative of the systemic racism in America that still exists despite legislation to reverse the prejudice of our governments. We cannot be a democratic society where prejudice is allowed to silently control the freedom and liberty of a portion of our population simply because of the color of their skin. Continue reading

Alienated, not apathetic: why workers don’t vote

One stop that sticks out from my first campaign barnstorm through the South and Midwest was a 2 am stop on June 5 at a Waffle House in Kimball, TN, west of Chattanooga on the way to Nashville. We were on the longest leg of the trip. We had to get from an evening speaking event in Athens, GA to a 4 pm event the next day in St. Louis, MO. So we stopped at a Waffle House for food, about the only place open at that hour along Interstate 24. Continue reading

Dreaming about Mueller

By Dennis Lambert - Democrats were holding their collective breaths for the Mueller Report to be completed and submitted since the appointment of the Special Council anticipating that President Trump would be charged with anything (No collusion!) and everything their wildest dreams permitted. Despite the obvious evidence of obstruction of justice by the President and those he has appointed, there is still no accountability for those crimes. Continue reading

No War on Iran! No War on Venezuela! No War on Migrants!

DAVID ROLDE, WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 2019 This is a transcript of the speech I gave at the July 13, 2019, anti-war rally at Park Street Boston. Hello everyone. I’m glad to be out here protesting against the wars. I want to thank UNAC, the United National Antiwar Coalition, for initiating this call to action for protests this weekend. I want to thank all my comrades out here from different organizations, and individuals. We all know that these U.S. imperialist wars are horrible and we stand up in opposition. The war against migrants here, most of whom are indigenous people of these American continents, and the war against Black or African people here. The imperialist wars against Iran and Syria and Palestine, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, Somalia, Libya, Afghanistan, Sudan, Congo and other nations in the so-called Middle East and in Africa. The imperialist wars against Venezuela and Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Cuba, Colombia, Haiti and other nations in Latin America. These wars are one big U.S. imperialist war against the people of the world. It is outrageous and it has got to stop. Continue reading

In 2010 he became the first candidate in the United States to campaign for a “Green New Deal”. Continue reading

Howie Hawkins: 'Close the Camps: End the Abuse of Immigrants, Enact Humane Immigration Policies'

Update: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials plan to launch nationwide raids and arrest thousands of undocumented immigrants as soon as this weekend. Reportedly, 2,000 immigrants who have been ordered deported by the federal government will be targeted. Agents will also reportedly arrest people who happen to be on the scene, even if they weren't the target of the raids. These so-called "collateral" deportations could include entire families. Officials said they will be held in detention centers together, where possible. Continue reading
