In The News: Green New Deal Forum in Albany; Facebook Live Town Hall Tonight
TONIGHT: Facebook Live Town Hall at 8:00 p.m. (Thursday, March 14)
If you haven't been participating in our online forum to discuss platform ideas then this is your first look at how things are coming along.
But there's still plenty of time to submit your ideas for the platform! The next deadline for feedback and revisions is March 30, and then we will circulate and take feedback on a 2nd draft in April before finally ratifying the platform at our May 11 statewide meeting.
We hope you join us tonight at 8:00 p.m.
News Coverage of Upper Hudson Green Party's Green New Deal Forum AND Video!
A forum on the Green New Deal organized by the Upper Hudson Green Party (UHGP) drew a crowd of 50 to Albany to hear from 2018 Green Party statewide candidates Howie Hawkins and Mark Dunlea, and Meghan Marohn of the Green Sanctuary Committee of the Albany Unitarians and Extinction Rebellion.
WAMC radio covered the forum and we are also grateful to the UHGP for sharing video of the speakers.
State Dems' Budgets Show That Even With Total Control of NY Gov't They Aren't Delivering On Healthcare, Marijuana Legalization, Economic Justice
We had a few things to say about the proposed budgets from the NY Assembly and Senate that came out this week.
State Democrats are dragging their feet or actively walking backwards on New Yorkers' demands for a Medicare-For-All style healthcare plan, bail reform and other measures to mitigate mass incarceration, and legalizing Marijuana in a way that ensures safe cannabis production and reparations to victims of the drug war.
Join us as we keep Demanding More for real changes in our communities and across New York!
Thanks and Solidarity,
Gloria and Peter
Green Party of NY Co-Chairs
