From our platform ...
We understand that until significant steps are taken to reverse the ongoing abuses; to end the criminalization of the Black and Brown communities, to eradicate poverty, to invest in education, health care and the restoration and protection of human rights, that it will be impossible to repair the continuing damage wrought by the ideology of white supremacy which permeates the governing institutions of our nation.

WARRENVILLE, IL – We are Green. We commit to full and complete reparations to the African American community of this nation for the past four hundred plus years of genocide, slavery, land-loss, destruction of original identity and the stark disparities which haunt the present evidenced in unemployment statistics, substandard and inadequate education, higher levels of mortality including infant and maternal mortality and the practice of mass incarceration. We recognize that reparations are a debt (not charity) that is owed by our own and other nations and by the corporate institutions chartered under our laws to a collective of people.

A conversation with the National Black Caucus (NBC) and invited guests including trans activists, trans men and trans women and allies to have an open and honest dialogue of issues facing Black Trans people in relation to issues facing the wider Black community. There have been many issues facing the trans community and facing Black people; we have noticed that discussions about trans inclusion and issues often fail to include the voices of Black trans women and men and often fail to include Black perspectives in the wider communities, especially in community spaces.
PITTSBURGH – Stop the Station is a coalition of local activist groups fighting for police accountability in the city of Pittsburgh, PA. It was initially formed in the summer of 2020 to fight the relocation of the Zone 5 Police Station to East Liberty at a cost of $3 million. There was a backlash from the community to the project and to the city’s lying that the decision was by popular demand. Since then, Stop the Station has gained much support and momentum. The Green Party of Allegheny County (GPOAC) is a member of Stop the Station’s Community Control Coalition.
