The Green Party of California's Statement on Public Ownership of Utilities

The catastrophic consequences of the recent Paradise and Woolsey fires have born horrible and predictable fruit for the victims who remain, in many instances, still homeless and without recourse. To make matters worse, the State of California and its Public Utility Commission (CPUC) is abdicating its role to hold responsible the private utility, PG&E for its decades of failure to put the public interest before its corporate profits. The CPUC is proposing to bailout the utility and foist the cost onto the ratepayers. Continue reading

Anti-War Teach-Ins – Can you help?

We need the help of Green Party activists to organize anti-war teach-ins. The Green Party Peace Action Committee (GPAX) is looking for people to reach out to peace and student groups and progressive faculty. This effort coincides with national and local peace actions. We are developing background materials and are looking for Green Party members who can be speakers. Please contact me or other GPAX members. Thanks. I have proposed that the Green Party help organize anti-war teach-ins on "From Yemen to Venezuela: US Aggression Must End". We should be able to organize quite a few if we put a major effort into it, setting a goal of 20 to 25 teach-ins (nationwide). It is possible to organize 4 to 5 teach-ins here in Ohio. Targeting college campuses should be a priority. I believe this effort would help to build the peace movement and at the same time build the Green Party. Continue reading

2019 Illinois Green Party Spring Convention

The Illinois Green Party holds two Membership Meetings each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. These meetings are our chance to conduct official, statewide business and to hold training and educational sessions, as well as panel discussions and keynote addresses from invited speakers.

Support Senate Bill 141!

The United States takes pride in calling itself a "democratic" republic, with "free and fair elections." Yet Illinois election laws are fixed to give a huge advantage to the candidates of just two political parties, stifling all other competition. Such a system cannot justly be described as "democratic" or "free and fair." That is why the Illinois Green Party urges Illinoisans to speak up and take a strong stand in support of Senate Bill 141. Illinois has one of the most repressive, restrictive and grossly unfair ballot access laws in the United States. For example: Continue reading
