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
People power is what we rely on! Sign up here to get on our mailing list and to volunteer. We will pass your information to your state party, as well as keep you informed about opportunities at the national level. Or contact your state party directly.Volunteer

Greens slam Biden administration for impeding climate action at COP27The EcoAction Committee of the Green Party of the U.S. criticized the Biden administration as the United States once again impeded climate action at the recently concluded COP27 in Egypt. “The head of the United Nations and leading scientists have repeatedly warned that the time to avoid climate collapse is running out and that the commitments made by governments worldwide are grossly inadequate. While the GOP have been climate deniers, the Democrats have long promoted climate delay, blocking critical action to halt fossil fuel burning as quickly as possible. The U.S. has been the biggest contributor to climate change and under Biden and Kerry it remains one of the biggest obstacles to saving life on the planet,” said Mark Dunlea, co-chair of EcoAction.Continue reading
Why I'm Green
"I'm Green because I refuse to be complicit in my own opression. Power is to be shared amongst the many, and consolidated amongst the few."
Samantha is President of the Minneaolis Board of Estimate and Taxation (elected November, 2021).

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.
