Expanding Ballot Access in 2018

Last year the Green Party gained national visibility and reached a peak of 5% support in mid-summer polls. As the election drew closer, support gradually fell to 1.1% on election day. While a number of factors were at play, the lack of ballot lines in several large states was among them. The 1.5 million votes received by Jill Stein in 2016 is three times her vote total in 2012. It is nine times the votes received by former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in 2008, and twelve times the vote for David Cobb in 2004. While the Green Party presidential vote in 2016 is only 51% of our vote for Ralph Nader in 2000, it is double the vote for Nader's best run as an independent. Continue reading

The Status Quo is Unacceptable

The Green Party has made important strides, winning over 40 seats during the 2017 election cycle. Your support helped make this possible. When Greens govern, you govern, which is why your donations mean so much. We indeed have much to be grateful for thanks to your generosity! While the dominant parties ‘talk the talk’, trying to convince the public that they are doing all they can to help those most in need, Greens are ‘walking the walk.’ We're supporting efforts to help those ravaged by the hurricane in Puerto Rico. Greens took to the streets in massive numbers in the nation’s capital demanding answers. Caring is good. Giving is greater. And should you think minimal contributions are inconsequential, ask those forgotten American citizens in Puerto Rico to whom donations mean so much. Continue reading

Big Win for Ballot Access!

The Green Party news out of North Carolina is incredible. A law just passed that will reduce the North Carolina Green Party’s ballot-access requirement from a whopping 94,000 petition signatures to about 11,000. The law will finally put North Carolina’s ballot-access laws on par with most states. Thanks to Greens who helped push for its passage! And with a $5,000 grant from the Green Party of the United States, the North Carolina Green Party is organizing petitioners and phone-banking to ensure it gets on the ballot in 2018—for the first time in history.

Green Party Of The United States Advisory Alert! Funding Needed For Critical Petition Drives

2016 was a banner year for the Green Party. The ballot access efforts of the presidential campaign of Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka put the Green Party in the record books because we got on the ballot in 45 states, and as write-ins on 3 more. That's the most ballot lines the Green Party has ever had! Not only did we go into November with our highest number of state ballot lines, we also emerged from the election with our highest post-election number of state ballot lines. That is right, we are currently on the ballot in 22 states. Continue reading

Love, Revolution & Sanctuary Cities

As Ernesto Che Guevara said, “At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality.” He is exactly right. And that is why Greens are revolutionary - so very different from establishment Democrats and Republicans Continue reading

Fighting Back and Electing Greens for Five Dollars!

The time is now--and we need you to do your part

This past Saturday was historic.

The peaceful marches happened in cities all over the nation. From Boston and Philadelphia to San Francisco and Los Angeles, in large cities and small, hundreds of thousands of people marched in solidarity, for women’s rights and women’s freedom. Continue reading
