Green Party Candidates Lay Out Midterm Challenge to Major Parties
The Green Party of the United States closed the 2018 Annual National Meeting at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City held July 19 to 22 with a challenge to the corporate-funded Democratic and Republican Parties and a call to action.
"Green campaigns are powering up for victory in Utah and all across the country," said Erin Fox, Co-chair of the party's Coordinated Campaign Committee. "Our candidates aren't just asking for votes, they are asking voters to participate in our shared democracy by getting involved in a movement that puts the people, planet and peace first."
