We Can't Stand Silent. Green-Rainbow news for June 2022
Save the Date: October 1, 2022, for GRP Annual State Convention on Zoom
Each year, the Green-Rainbow Party sets its most important goals for the coming year at its Annual State Convention. (Not to be confused with the equally vital Annual National Convention on July 28th and 29th.)
As the GRP Convention Planning Committee refines our theme and schedules inspiring presenters, we Greens are urged to save the date of Saturday, October First. We are all hoping that this will be the last ZOOM State Convention and that in 2023 we will be face to face once again.

"Democratic Intentions are not Enough"
Actions speak louder than words. From the Squad to the Bluest Blue dog Democrat with their recent, unquestioning vote for $40 billion for Ukraine they have continued to sell the people down the river in favor of war.
The relation of the Peace movement to the Democratic Party has elements of an abusive relationship. They (Dems) promise that, if elected, they will prove their loving commitment to us. Their behavior will improve. Hopeful voters, once again, elect Democrats. And whammy, we get smacked in the face after voting for the “lesser evil”, we lose the right of choice for women, and gain a 100% vote for war--not one single vote in the party for peace!!
