Illinois Greens will continue with the fight for Equal Ballot Access and Ranked Choice Voting!
CHICAGO – Equal Ballot Access House Bill 2398 would have reduced the petition requirements for new parties.

Working toward a future where people and planet are valued, and our government represents all of us.
PA Green Party Denounces Israeli Violence
by GPPA Co-chair Tina Olson

Members of the Green Party of Pennsylvania (GPPA, www.gpofpa.org) joined in pro-Palestinian rallies that were held throughout the state on May 15. The Green Party joined other activist organizations such as Black Lives Matter; Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) Coalition; Drexel Students for Justice in Palestine; New Afrikan Independence Party; Pittsburgh Anti-Imperialist League; and Jewish Voice for Peace, in solidarity to end the suffering of the Palestinian people . . .Read more
SAN FRANCISCO – Today, May 15, is the 73rd anniversary of the Nakba, the day that changed the Palestinian people's history forever. The Nakbah (al-Nakbah; "catastrophe") marks the forced expulsion, dispossession, and displacement of the majority of indigenous Christians and Muslims, over 750,000 people from Palestine during the 1948 war. In reality, the Nakba has since solidified into an Israeli campaign of terror, ethnic segregation, land confiscations, and destruction of villages for Jewish settlement leading to a vanishing Palestine with over 7 million Palestinians living as refugees today.Read more

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.

Biden is reportedly considering a one-time, $3 trillion green infrastructure stimulus, though only about $400 billion for direct climate measures.Read more
