According to Food and Water Action Fund's (FWAF) recently released assessment, it demonstrates that New Jersey Green Party gubernatorial candidate Seth Kaper-Dale has the most environmentally friendly platform out of those candidates who chose to answer the survey.
According to FWAF, only one of the candidates from the two dominant parties scored as well as Kaper-Dale. "Despite several requests, presumed Democratic frontrunner Phil Murphy did not complete the survey, leaving open questions about his positions on several key issues. The survey was not returned by any of the Republican candidates, including leading contenders Kim Guadagno and Jack Ciattarelli.", their website stated.Read more
Part of the cure to the materialism and greed that rules our country and state is nurturing the gifts of nature with which we are blessed. I don’t envy the expensive properties owned and extravagant galas held by Goldman Sachs oligarchs and corrupt political bosses. I pity them for dismissing what our beautiful world has to offer. They ignore the Earth’s needs, and they desecrate its abundance.Read more

Green Party Candidate for Los Angeles City Council, District 13
Jessica Salans is an activist, organizer and storyteller, originally from the Bay Area. She felt a strong call-to-action after volunteering for Bernie Sanders’ insurgent campaign in 2016.
Jessica grew up in a progressive household, raised by a mother who is a holistic healer and a father who started a community garden and local farm. Immersed in theater arts since elementary school, Jessica carries a deep love for art and storytelling of all mediums. After briefly attending University of Miami’s BFA Theatre conservatory, she finished a degree in theater at San Jose State, co-founding SPOTLITE Stage Company (Student Productions Operating To Learn & Integrate Theatere Education) and finding/exercising her love of directing and producing plays. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Jessica immersed herself in the world of LA Theater, becoming a writer and social media manager with Stage Raw, and participating in the Hollywood Fringe Festival.
Last year, Jessica joined the leadership team, Glendale 4 Bernie, where she trained volunteers on Bernie’s platform, and how to phone bank. She also canvassed in Las Vegas, Tucson and LA for the Sanders campaign.
Jessica also became involved with Food and Water Watch and Save Porter Ranch’s efforts to bring about the permanent shut down of Alison Canyon, where last year, a gas blow out became the largest release of methane in US history, harming and displacing thousands of residents.
“There are incredible organizers in Los Angeles. Now we need representatives on City Council who will not only listen to their work but encourage their voices and be a megaphone for their efforts.”
We are a grassroots, people powered campaign. We are here to serve the Four Pillars of Justice- Social, Racial, Economic and Environmental Justices, while showing up and standing with the residents of District 13.
It is time our elected officials become public servants that actually represent and encourage the voices of The People, over the profits of big business.
We hope you will learn more and join us in our endeavors to be campaign of, by and for The People.

The Green Party of New Jersey stands in strong opposition to the new gas pipeline project proposed by South Jersey Gas.
This pipeline would run 22 miles through protected areas of the Pinelands National Reserve, in sensitive forest areas in Cumberland, Atlantic, and Cape May Counties. The risk the pipeline poses to the environment and human water supplies greatly outweighs any benefit that may come from its construction.Read more

Cannon Ball, North Dakota (Oceti Sakowin or Council of the Seven Fires Camp) – Today, the people won a major victory in the fight to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). The US Army Corps of Engineers sided with the Water Protectors and refused the final permit that would have allowed Energy Transfer Partners to drill under Lake Oahe. There will be battles ahead but this was another amazing people-powered victory. When people unite, we have power. This time people power defeated big oil and big finance.Read more
