Green relief work in Venezuela

I hope you have been able to spend at least some of this holiday season resting and reconnecting with your family, friends and community, even as we face renewed threats from the pandemic. As difficult as this pandemic has been for us, can you imagine enduring it under the suffocating weight of economic sanctions enforced by U.S. imperialism? Continue reading

These Greens are back on the ballot — can you help others?

Great news! This summer, Arkansas Greens achieved ballot access for the 2024 Green Party Presidential Ballot line. In states like New Mexico, Kansas, Nevada and North Carolina, brave Green volunteers are out petitioning — but we face an uphill battle: Continue reading

Workers *and* the World, unite!

For Labor Day, we're thinking about the necessity of the "Just Transition". A Just Transition means doing everything we can to take human civilization 100% fossil-free by 2030, but doing so in a way that does not devastate everyday people whose livelihoods currently depend on a fossil fuel economy they did not choose. Continue reading

A Green Inauguration Day

Imagine with us for a moment: It's January 20th, in a year not too far away. Inauguration Day. A Green Party President-Elect is about to take the oath of office. Continue reading

The Capitol Riot Was a Preview of Trumpism After Trump

Yesterday's riot in the Capitol, instigated by Donald Trump and his enablers in politics and the corporate media, is a disgrace on many levels. That these flag-waving, white supremacist thugs were allowed to escalate the situation so far is yet another insult to Black, Brown and Indigenous People who have been brutalized or killed by police while exercising their right to truly peaceful protest — or even while just driving, walking or being present in their  Continue reading

100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment

August 26th marked the centennial anniversary of the federal government ratifying the 19th amendment, granting women the right to vote. Even as we celebrate that hard-fought victory, however, we must remember many women were not able to exercise that right because of a pernicious web of laws and regulations designed to disenfranchise voters based on race and country of origin. A series of reforms through the following decades gradually expanded the right to vote to citizens of all races and nationalities, culminating in the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Continue reading

#GreenEnter2020 Has Begun

Thousands upon thousands of people are exploring the Green Party as a possible home following Bernie Sanders suspending his campaign for president. The timing was a bit of a surprise, but we're happy to report an explosion of new signups and volunteers in our grassroots party "Of, By and For the People." We're moving quickly to connect these new allies into the fight for Grassroots Democracy, Social Justice, Ecological Wisdom and Non-violence. Continue reading

Coronavirus, Capitalism and other diseases

The COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting nearly every facet of life in many communities. We must practice “social distancing” as one of the tactics to contain —or at least slow— the outbreak but we must also practice solidarity and mutual aid wherever conditions allow. For this public health crisis is simultaneously an economic crisis for countless people impacted by the virus and corresponding quarantines. And the reason for that is simple: our political system (the two-party cartel) and economic system (capitalism) have utterly failed us. But it didn’t have to be this way. For years the Green Party has campaigned for: Continue reading
