It's time, Mass voters: Go Green in 2016!

There are only three days left to Election Day on November 8th and it has been very exciting. We have seen the Green Party run candidates and get exposure like never before. Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka have not only helped build a national movement with their run for President and Vice President of the United States but also placed the Green Party on the map again. Further, in Massachusetts we have two candidates running for the office of State Representative. They are: Danny Factor for the 14th Middlesex District and Charlene DiCalogero for the 12th Worcester District. With your support the Green Party, and its Massachusetts affiliate, the Green-Rainbow Party will continue to lead the way with strong and viable candidates like these. Continue reading

On Election Day, will I regret not having done more?

Here's something that scares me, as an organizer: the prospect of watching results roll in on Election Day and asking myself, could I have done more? Would we have got a little closer to a key goal, like 5% of the statewide vote, if I'd put in a few extra hours; pushed my limits just a little harder? There's a lot at stake for the future of the Green Party this year in Illinois. Our ability to grow and build in years to come depends on making that 5% threshold on Nov. 8th, so that future Green candidates can compete under the same rules as the Democrat and Republican Party candidates. It would be heartbreaking to come close and fall just barely short. Continue reading

Jill is a fearless but reasoned voice for economic fairness, climate change mitigation, equitable treatment for all and a foreign policy based on waging peace, not war.

How to vote in Texas if you don't have a photo ID

If you don't have a photo ID (reminder of the accepted forms of photo ID here), you'll just need to fill out a short form stating the reason why you haven't been able to get one and swearing that you are who you say you are.

Tarrant County Green Party Endorses Black Lives Matter Network and Vision For Black Lives

The Tarrant County Green Party has joined the Black Lives Matter Movement in mutual support and coalition to strengthen the movement to stop oppressive actions of police brutality in the U.S and other countries internationally. The brutality of U.S. police officers toward African-Americans is intolerable. As activists realize that the same systems of oppression killing them in the United States are active worldwide, the movement spreads beyond American borders. Non-violent activists from Ferguson, Missouri, traveled to Palestine in 2015 to cement a growing sense of solidarity and connection with the shared struggles of Palestinians against the Israeli occupation.
