The March for Fossil Fuel Freedom: A 34-mile walk to Expose Oily Wells
Wells Fargo Bank has a dirty-energy secret: it's a leading lender to the fossil-fuel industry. That's why a coalition of supporters - including Santa Clara County Green Party - is participating in a campaign targeting San Francisco-based "Oily Wells" and marching 34 miles, from Palo Alto to San Francisco.Read more
We need forests of change , and you can help us plant themWe need forests of change , and you can help us plant them
Change is a constant, but we Greens work for change at an unprecedented scale, because that is what our world needs. By seeding our communities with the small changes we want, we continue to gather power to collectively create massive forests of change from the small seedlings we nurture everyday.
We invite you to join us at these events and actions and help plant the world with revolutionary change.
"If we have a future, it will be green."
~ Petra Kelly, cofounder of the German Green Party
The Courage that Came Before
by GPPA Co-chair Sheri Miller
I read a comment in Facebook recently that was a lament about all the protesting that’s been going on. The woman who wrote it felt that these public displays in the streets were disturbing and not the best way to change things. You can imagine the firestorm of comments that followed. I was actually glad this was posted, because the discussion that was generated prompted me to revisit my history as a woman and I developed a renewed gratitude for the courage and sacrifices of those historical women who brought about the freedoms I have today.Read more
The Green Party of Santa Clara County stands in opposition to the US-led coup in Venezuela against the democratically-elected socialist President Nicolas Maduro. We also ask Wells Fargo - aka "Oily Wells" - to stop funding the worst environmental fossil fuel projects on the planet through a march from Palo Alto to San Francisco. Oil wars and oil wells are killing people and the planet. The Green Party's message of People, Planet, Peace Over Profit has never rung so true.Read more
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!
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.Read more

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.Read more
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!Read more
