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_driveRead more

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.
