We are grassroots activists, environmentalists, advocates for social justice, nonviolent resisters and regular citizens who’ve had enough of corporate-dominated politics. Government must be part of the solution, but when it’s controlled by the 1%, it’s part of the problem. The longer we wait for change, the harder it gets. Don’t stay home on election day. Vote Green!
Everything we do is based on our four pillars ...
Our country's long wars and worldwide military presence are immoral and unsustainable. Our military budget must be cut dramatically.
The human cost of climate change is too high. We need to get off fossil fuels and on to renewable energy.
Falling wages and rising bills are hitting most of us, and the most vulnerable are hit the hardest. We demand a living wage and a real safety net.
... and our ten key values

The Green Party of the United States today slammed President Biden and Congressional Democrats for apparently agreeing to slash funding for fighting climate change in their “Build Back Better Plan” to $30 billion a year. That figure amounts to 1/25 of the budget for the U.S. military, the world’s biggest consumer of oil.Continue reading
The Green Party of the United States deplores the waste of lives and treasure involved in America’s longest overseas war. Nearly 200,000 Afghans dead, almost 2,500 U.S. servicemen and women killed, trillions of dollars in American taxpayers’ money and twenty years of lost opportunities for building a more equitable and just society at home – all for nothing. Predictably, the mainstream media is having a field day with the tragic events unfolding in Afghanistan over the past week, but there’s one fact you’ll never, ever hear from them. The Green Party of the United States, back in 2001, got it right: we said no to war.Continue reading
The sudden, calamitous collapse of the US-empowered government of Afghanistan is the consequence of twenty years of dishonest and incompetent foreign policy. The blame for this disastrous era lies squarely with the Washington foreign policy establishment, also known as the military-industrial complex. This powerful alliance of defense contractors, government officials, academics, and media organizations has advocated bellicose policies and military adventurism that have spread ruin and chaos in nations across the globe. The failure in Afghanistan is only the latest and most stunning proof of the malignant and incompetent character of this pro-war establishment.Continue reading

WASHINGTON - The Green Party of the United States called today for President Biden and Congress to provide $2.7 trillion annually for a Green New Deal economic stimulus to reboot the economy and transition the country to a 100% renewable energy system with zero emissions by 2030.Continue reading
Why I'm Green
I'm Green because the Green Party is the only political Party in America with Reparations as part of its platform.
Trahern is co-chair of the Green Party of Minnesota and chairs the party’s politics committee. He is also co-chair of the Green Party of the U.S. Reparations Working Group and plans to make reparations for the American descendants of slavery an ongoing issue for the Green Party.

I'm Green because I can't take the lies and the conditions anymore. Homelessness while there are empty houses, prisons built while schools close, children being shot down on our streets by police, mothers losing their children to the state because they don't have water in their homes and can't afford the water bill. My friends and family cant afford to wait anymore to try and change the Democratic Party.
People who can wait are not familiar with our reality. The one party system is killing our people and it's high time we stand up and say something, and more importantly, change it. It can't change unless we break with the corporations' money and that's exactly what the Green Party is doing. It stands up to dirty money and puts forward the vision of the world we want to live in. We can't wait any more. Building our party now will help to ensure a future for all of our children and generations to come.

I'm Green because the corporate 2-party duopoly is a dead end for Revolution. The oligarchy will never give us the tools necessary to dismantle their power. The planet is melting meanwhile Justice Democrats accept dark money through a Super PAC. We are losing hope for humanity due to the greed of large corporations and wealthy politicians. Enough is enough.
I am an Astoria native running for New York City Council's 22nd District in November. Our campaign is working to revive Green Party ballot status in New York. We need ranked-choice voting in general elections, not just closed primaries and special elections. We demand basic human rights for the most vulnerable disabled, seniors, veterans, students and low-income. We must have proportional representation in our Democracy.
I was the lead organizer for the NYC March for Medicare for All. If elected, I would be the youngest member of the city council in its history. Not a Democrat. Not a Republican. A New Yorker.
