WARRENVILLE, IL – Illinois Green Party (ILGP) members are helping to organize events from Earth Day to May Day to highlight the urgent need for climate change, and to make the connection to the need for overall system change including environmental justice, labor rights and grassroots democracy.
The Greens, who started calling for an ecosocialist Green New Deal in the U.S. in 2010, recently called for Congress to pass a $4.1 trillion a year (for 10 years) green economic stimulus to create 30 million jobs and accelerate the transition to 100% renewable energy from all sources by 2030. Biden is reportedly considering a one-time, $3 trillion green infrastructure stimulus, though only about $400 billion for direct climate measures.Read more

Campaign Finance Reform - PROGRESS but we need your input now!
CORVALLIS, OR – YES! House bill 3343 is getting a lot of traction - it is getting a hearing March 30, 1:00pm - we need to send testimony before the hearing and up to 24 hours after.
