The Green Party of Texas (GPTX) is now recruiting Green candidates who support our ten key values for the 2020 general election ballot. For detailed information on running as a Green, please review our Candidate FAQ.

GPTX is committed to maintaining a ballot line to advocate for the people's issues as articulated in our platform. For this reason, GPTX has joined with other parties, candidates, and voters in filing a lawsuit to challenge Texas' unconstitutionally burdensome ballot access requirements. 


  • Help Wanted: Candidate to Run for U.S. Senate!

  • The Illinois Green Party is looking for a well-qualified candidate to run for U.S. Senate in 2020.

CHAPEL HILL NC – In our last newsletter, we announced Allen Smith’s campaign for Congress in the District 9 special election. Please consider donating to his campaign and volunteering. Allen is an outstanding candidate and will carry the Green Party message throughout his campaign.

This week we want to highlight the NC Green Party’s endorsement of Joshua Bradley for Raleigh City Council District A. This is a nonpartisan race, but Joshua is carrying the banner of the Socialist Party USA and the North Carolina Green Party (NCGP). Josh is a dual member of both organizations. NCGP members and supporters in the Triangle area, please donate to his campaign and volunteer. Josh and the campaign will need canvassers and poll workers, among other volunteers.https://www.ncgreenparty.org/2019_membership_drive

The Violence of Nuclear Energy

by Co-chair Alan Smith, Green Party of Pennsylvania

I awaken, head to the bathroom and look out the window. A column of steam greets my eyes as it rises from a nuclear power plant. I turn to look in the mirror and put on a peace sign necklace, taking a moment to meditate. The peace symbol, first used in 1958, was derived from international semaphore code which uses flag positions to symbolize letters. The letters used are N and D representing nuclear disarmament. In order to bring about peace we must rid this planet of the use of nuclear energy.


Wheaton, IL – A big thank you to all of you who contacted your representatives or state senators, or who sent in witness slips opposing HB 1633, the obnoxious ALEC-sponsored bill that would have sweepingly criminalized certain forms of protest against what its proponents called “critical infrastructure” (such as oil or gas pipelines). As one of our allies put it, it should have been called the “Protect Big Energy From the People Bill.”


Action Alert: Stop HB 1633!

As reported in our last newsletter, we are still in a struggle to defeat Illinois House Bill 1633 in the State Senate. Thank you to all who filed witness slips or contacted your State Senator to urge a “no” vote.


Action Alert: Stop HB 1633!

As we reported in a March newsletter, the Illinois Green Party opposes Illinois House Bill 1633, and we ask you to do the same. Unfortunately, despite our opposition and that of a number of other social justice, civil rights and environmental organizations, and despite there being many more witnesses opposing the bill than supporting it, the bill passed by a large majority in the House.

Santa Clara, California – This week, May Day was celebrated around the world with marches & rallies to defend and protect workers' rights and demand economic equity, social justice, environmental responsibility, and global peace.

Meanwhile, yet another U.S.-orchestrated coup to topple Venezuela's democratically-elected President Maduro has failed! 'We the People' know these issues are related. The U.S. disastrous economic policies of greed have led to growing income inequality, marginalization of our poor, lack of nationalized healthcare for all, and worldwide political instability. And we say #ENOUGH!
