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.

We demand public financing of elections, open debates, and more representative voting systems.

... and our ten key values

    Green Party Condemns COP28 a Failure as Fossil Fuels Remain Untouched

    December 12, 2023 - The Green Party of the United States (GPUS) said that COP28, which is now past the initial deadline to finish, would be an abject failure if it did not expressly call for a phaseout of fossil fuels. The Greens also said that the proposed funding to assist the developing world in dealing with the dangers of climate change driven by the industrial nations was grossly inadequate. "COP28 has demonstrated the utter lack of urgency and ambition needed to address the climate crisis," said Green Party EcoAction Committee Co Chair Mark Dunlea. "While the 'agreement' on loss and damage is a small step, it is a drop in the bucket compared to what is truly needed to support vulnerable communities."

    Green Party Calls for a Green New Deal, A Rapid Halt to Fossil Fuels at COP28

    The Green Party of the United States calls upon the Biden administration to support a rapid phaseout of fossil fuels and a ten-year transition to 100% renewable energy, with zero greenhouse gas emissions, at the COP28 climate summit that runs from November 30 to December 9. The Green Party, which began calling for a robust ecosocialist Green New Deal in 2010, insists that the U.S. support a just transition for all, and recognizes the disproportionate impact of climate change on vulnerable communities, which requires making climate reparations to the Global South to pay for the climate damage mainly caused by polluters from the industrial north.

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 Minneapolis 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.
