Help us bring fair and effective voting to the United States

As a supporter of the Green Party of the United States, you know how important it is to have a political system that truly represents the will of the people. Unfortunately, our current voting systems are riddled with problems that make it an up-hill battle for Greens to win against the parties of War and Wallstreet. That's why we're asking for your support on this Ranked Choice Voting Day! Continue reading

A reflection on Dr. Rev Martin Luther King, Jr.; his life and legacy

As I reflect on this "King Day" and the weekend of service projects, commemorative marches, and also the series of anti-war activities that honor his legacy and where we are in this country and the world on this 54th anniversary of his death it seems that so much has changed but so little has changed. We are still fighting the issues in many of our communities. Hate crimes, violence, criminalization of the poor, racism, sexism, and homophobia and even transphobia are on the rise. The planet is dying, and people are hurting, and there are those who play politics with our lives as if no one really matters. While the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. Continue reading

“Fat Cat” CEO’s cash in - Workers Left Out

As 2023 starts off, people are wondering how high inflation will raise prices on basic goods and services and curtail hiring and wage increases but there’s one group who doesn’t have a care in the world – the 100 highest paid CEO’s who continue to earn record-breaking salaries, anywhere from 300 to 1,000 times more than the wages of the average worker.

These Green Candidates to Watch are AMAZING!

Let's build for the future! The Green Party stands for Peace, Justice, and an Ecological future.

Big oil admits "gaslighting" the people while planet burns

Thank you for joining the Green Party in the fight for people and planet over profits. In the last week, internal documents from Shell, ExxonMobil, Chevron, and BP have come to light1 providing yet more proof that even their tepid, public commitments to addressing the climate crisis are a pack of lies.

Green campaigns won student debt relief. We're not finished.

What's the old saying? "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you..." When Dr. Jill Stein promised to unilaterally abolish student loan debt during her 2016 presidential campaign, the corporate media (including no less than HBO's John Oliver mocked the idea as ridiculous. Now, less than six years later, a sitting president has used executive powers to cancel student debt for millions of Americans. Continue reading

Biden's Gas Tax Holiday (From Hell)

And so it has come to this. Today, President Joe Biden called on Congress to suspend federal gasoline and diesel taxes amounting to 18 cents/gallon for three months. He urged states to take similar action. The past months' gas prices have been painful for everyday people like us. Had Democrats and Republicans listened to the last 12 years of warnings from Greens and others calling for a Green New Deal — that dependence on fossil fuels was becoming increasingly environmentally and financially unsustainable — we might be in a very different place than we are today.

Inflating your expenses, deflating your vote

Rising prices for the necessities of life are hurting everyday people. And while many of us are still reeling from the pandemic and related economic crash, our government's response is to drive down wages, raise interest rates, and make sure it's not too easy for working people to find employment. That's because they think it's just fine for the wealth of billionaires to skyrocket during a global health crisis, but everyday people gaining a tiny bit of leverage against their employers can only be regarded as a problem that must corrected. Continue reading
