Running for Election as a Green Party Candidate

By Co-chair Beth Scroggin, Green Party of PA PHILADELPHIA – Welcome to October, a month when our Pennsylvania fall foliage can astound us with its beauty, and when our Green Party electoral campaigns are in full swing!

Current forms of production of nuclear energy –from the mining of uranium, which constitutes one of the grossest forms of exploitation of the Native American population, to the still unsolved problem of radioactive waste disposal –are an environmental nightmare from beginning to end.

At the same time the eviction moratorium has expired and the federal minimum wage has stagnated at $7.25 for over a decade. In recent years U.S. has seen an unprecedented wealth and earning gap bloom at nearly the same rate as worker exploitation with the rise of the gig economy. This capitalist bubble of growth and concentrated profiteering is unsustainable by people or the planet we inhabit. We must reverse course to an economy of, for and by the people. Continue reading
