As we close out 2020, we may feel tired of the struggle, but we can't give up. It is crucial that we maintain our ballot line as an alternative for progressive candidates and a pressure point on the status quo.
In 2021, the Green Party of Texas (GPTX) must focus on recruiting candidates for the 2022 general election. We have collected relevant information for prospective candidates on our website: txgreens.org/candidate_faq. You can help by referring good prospective leaders you may encounter in your community to this information resource & emphasizing the value of not being screened out in a competitive primary. Once an individual files to run for office, GPTX can post a profile & give guidance about the convention process.Read more

Thank you to all who voted Green in 2020, making a clear demand for the changes we need. While the scenery of the political theater changes, the circumstances of people's lives remain precarious. The climate catastrophe continues whether we prepare for it or not, and the empire continues its short-sighted pursuit of safeguarding the status quo.
The Green Party of Texas (GPTX) retains ballot access through 2026. By holding the door open for progressive candidates to access the ballot without competing in a crowded Democratic primary, Greens serve as a pressure point to force issues into the public debate, and a very real threat that if progressive voices are continually denied they will go elsewhere.Read more

Saying 2020 has been an unusually challenging year is an understatement as the onslaught of environmental, social and health crises fill our daily lives.
California's recent lightning-sparked wildfires have brought the 2020 tally to well over 2 million acres of land burned and have forced tens of thousands of residents from their homes amidst a pandemic in full swing. We must acknowledge that this is the result of decades of destructive environmental policies dictated by the fossil fuel industry and a deep disregard for the Indigenous Nation's ancestral fire management practices for sustainable land stewardship. For centuries, Native nations of California have naturally managed small "good" fires in order to prevent devastating ones like the SCU Lightning Complex Fire and the currently raging Mendocino National Forest fire.Read more
