Change is a constant, but we Greens work for change at an unprecedented scale, because that is what our world needs. By seeding our communities with the small changes we want, we continue to gather power to collectively create massive forests of change from the small seedlings we nurture everyday.
We invite you to join us at these events and actions and help plant the world with revolutionary change.
"If we have a future, it will be green."

Webinar: Digital Organizing Tools for Campaigns
Presented by the GPUS Coordinating Campaign Committee
Tuesday, March 12th at 6 PM Pacific Time, (9 PM Eastern)
It seems like every election cycle there are new apps and digital tools that are helping campaigns communicate and engage with constituents more effectively, accomplish previously complex needs more easily, and in general help campaigns operate more efficiently. In this workshop we will look at various tools and services that can help in various areas of electoral campaigns, though many of these tools may also be useful to parties and movements as well. Whether it be internal communications, live streams, or voter engagement, there are numerous options available today to expand the scope of what is affordable and possible for grassroots campaigns. In each section covered, we will look at some of the options available, their costs, and how they might improve the effectiveness of our campaigns.
In this workshop we will look at:
- Engagement Tools
- Web Design
- Payment Processing
This webinar will be facilitated by Chris Blankenhorn. Chris is a former Green Party US Co-Chair from Springfield, IL. He currently serves as Co-Chair of the Illinois Green Party, Vice Chair of the Young Ecosocialists' Education Committee, and Co-Chair of the GPUS Merchandise Committee.
Recordings of other previously recorded calls are available here.

Greens National Lobby Day for 100% Public Funding Only for All Elections
April 1 - 5, 2019
Greens from all over the USA will join together to lobby their congress and ask them to take the the public-funding-only pledge and also to sponsor or co-sponsor a bill in Congress to free our elections from any sort of bribery cash: special interest PAC, corporate or dark money donations. Instead - qualified candidates from every party would get an equal chance in TV, radio and printed ads, debates and appearances. This would allow other voices to be heard and the American voters to be aware of all of their choices.
Now is the time to get lobby members from your states and coordinate which members they will schedule meetings with.
If you'd like to participate, please find more info at: www.greensvsgreed.org. See event details here.
Join Greens from all states and ask YOUR Congress person to sign a "Public Funding Only" pledge.
