This month is about Peace & Love. Peace for the planet with a call to end all wars for oil and stop US imperialism (think Syria and Venezuela). Love for the people through a national week of actions to push for Improved Medicare For All (Single Payer).
This message of People, Planet, Peace Over Profit is what the Green Party is all about!
Welcome to your new Green Party of Washington newsletter. We’re still working on an easy way for people to submit news for the Newsletter. For now you can send it to [email protected]
Report from the Fall Gathering 2018
Usually the Green Party of Monroe County has its monthly meeting on the second Thursday of each month. For this month we are bumping that a week to Thursday, December 20th. Why? So we can get together to watch the latest Michael Moore movie, Fahrenheit 11/9!
Join us to watch Fahrenheit 11/9 on the 20th at 7:00 pm at the Flying Squirrel Community Space, 285 Clarissa Street. It’s free, wheelchair accessible, and of course the captioning will be on.
From the Chair, Sheri Miller
In this final Newsletter of 2018, I wanted to look back over the year and review our many accomplishments! Through the volunteer efforts of nearly 100 signature gatherers, we were able to get six candidates on the PA ballot. We also had a special election candidate and, after we received a request by voters in Congressional District 13 who wanted alternative choices on November 6, we were able to mount a write-in campaign.
The Green New Deal
When we Greens talk about our policies and platform it may seem that we are talking about separate platform planks. But our policies come together in an integrated plan called the Green New Deal!
You all may have heard a lot about it in the recent weeks as young progressive Democrats seem to have found the concept and brought it to corporate Media'a attentions!
Welcome to your new Green Party of Washington newsletter. I am anxiously awaiting a name of my own! Send me your ideas for my name and you can all vote on them at our Fall Gathering on November 10th using Ranked Choice Voting!

We often hear "Why don't Greens run for local offices?". We are proud to share that many Greens across California do run for local and non-partisan offices in every election and many are elected! Greens currently serve in over 60 public offices in California and they have all won their seats by running grassroots campaigns with PEOPLE POWER and with NO corporate or lobbyist contributions.
Greetings Fellow Greens and Green Supporters!
I am so excited to tell you that our candidates' campaigns are off and running! Several candidates have received endorsements from some prominent organizations such as Our Revolution and Action Together NEPA. If you want to help our candidates win, we have campaigns throughout the state, in NEPA, SEPA, and Western PA, as well as our three state-wide candidates.
The debate is on and we want to make sure Howie Hawkins is a part of it.
