BALTIMORE – We are so excited to share with you that the Maryland Green Party has officially launched our 2019 year-end fundraising campaign! We have the goal of raising $2,500 in individual gifts and 28 new monthly sustaining donors to our ranks by December 31st. I know how much our Maryland Green Party values of ecology, social justice, and grassroots democracy mean to you and I so hope that you’ll join me in making a gift of $15, $30, or $99 to secure a more equitable and sustainable Maryland for all!

PHILADELPHIA – The 2020 election season is off to a fast start, and the Green Party of Pennsylvania (GPPA) has big plans. We want Green candidates across the Commonwealth to run for state legislature.  We know voters are tired of the same old politics in Harrisburg, and ready to hear new voices supporting the 4 Pillars and 10 Key Values of the Green Party.  

To ordinary citizens, running for office often feels intimidating.  The Green Wave Team of GPPA is here to educate potential candidates from the start.   And between now and the end of this year, our Sowing the Seeds candidate incentive campaign will make a $250 donation to all candidates who organize and file a campaign committee for 2020.

BALTIMORE – Over the past year, the Maryland Green Party has been actively working to regain Ballot Access and to lay a foundation for the 2020 election. We look forward to the 2020’s as a crucial decade for the direction of the state of Maryland and for the Planet, we know that increasingly more and more people are demanding an alternative to the two party system and we want to be well positioned to be that alternative.

So far this year we have:

Colonialism, Capitalism, and Conquest Versus Connectedness

by GPPA Co-chair Alan Smith

My great grandfather, James, built a house for our family and white supremacists bombed it. He died from the injuries he suffered. He was Cherokee. His wife's mother was Lumbee, and lived enslaved on a North Carolina plantation.
