Calls To Action from the Green Party of Santa Clara County

In a recent Gallup poll, a record 62% of US voters said we need a new major party. Stop HR-1, the Voting Rights Bill That Restricts Voter Choice HR-1 is sold as a way to get money out of politics and to protect voters, but it contains a poison pill for democracy and opposition parties like the Green Party in its campaign finance reform section. HR1 quintuples the amount of money Green presidential campaigns will be required to raise to qualify for federal matching funds: from $5,000 in each of 20 states to $25,000 per state.

Green Party of Virginia condemns poison pill provisions of H.R. 1

RICHMOND, VA – The Green Party of Virginia condemns multiple provisions of the recently introduced H.R.1, otherwise known as the For the People Act, which undermines third parties. The bill, while purporting to expand democracy, includes changes to rules governing the public financing of campaigns that are aimed squarely at limiting the participation of third parties.Such provisions include section 5202(1)(a) which quintuples the amount of money that campaigns need to raise in order to qualify for federal matching funds. These funds are an incredibly important source of income for third parties, especially the Green Party which takes no corporate money. Raising the threshold for acquiring these funds does nothing to promote democracy, and by limiting the participation of third parties, does much to harm it. Continue reading

Bipartisan Disaster

Georgetown, Texas - February 16: Multiple People Outside of HEB Grocery Store During Texas Blizzard There is bipartisan responsibility for utility failures during Texas' arctic freeze, resulting from privatization, regulatory capture by industry interests & profit motive that erodes the public infrastructure.

Jill Stein vs the Federal Elections Commission

Join the Green-Rainbow Party this morning, Thursday at 10 AM on Zoom to support Jill Stein in this monstrous show trial. The FEC plans to make Jill Stein’s 2016 Presidential Campaign pay back $175,000.

In this case, it's the Green Party’s 2016 presidential campaign on the firing line (again). Specifically, the FEC is demanding Jill Stein personally repay $175,000 in public funding spent on ballot access after the Green Party’s nominating convention in 2016. Continue reading
