Many of us have recently received a letter from the Monroe County Board of Elections. This is a misleading letter to trick people to change their registration.
You are still a Green!
Greens knew from the start that 2020 would be a tough year for their presidential ticket. The election would be a referendum on Trump. For most progressives, Anybody But Trump would do.
Our campaign believed that an ecosocialist program is needed for real solutions to the life-or-death issues of climate, inequality, racism, and war. We believed that the way to defeat the Trump Republicans was for the left to put forward its own program and not rely on the Democrats’ pallid centrism, which would not speak to the economic and social anxieties that the Trump far-right has been mobilizing around with racist and conspiracy scapegoating.Read more

We’re furious. Livid. Seething.
The Democrats spent the last four years demonizing the Green Party. They blamed us for their failures.
They told lies about Jill Stein acting like a Russian tool. We saw how they undemocratically kicked us off the ballot in state after state, but continued to cynically whip up hysteria about a vote for Green candidates.Read more

We're not going to sugar-coat it. We have less than three weeks to save the Green Party in New York State. Gov. Cuomo and the Democrats changed the law this year so that if we don’t get at least 150,000 votes, the Green Party will disappear from the ballot.
That means your vote for Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker is necessary to save your Green Party’s ballot line!Read more
