Wisconsin Greens Fall Gathering on Saturday

  • Genocide and Ecocide, Time to Act!

The theme of this gathering will be “Genocide and Ecocide: Time to Act” and will feature two focused presentations and discussions. The first, with Dr. Murray BorrelloDirector/Chair of Environmental Studies Program at Alma College, will be on the urgent challenge of climate change and ecological collapse, addressing the critical need for transformative environmental actions. The second, with Jonathan Kuttab, co-founder of the Palestinian human rights group Al-Haq and co-founder of Nonviolence International, will center on the situation in Gaza, highlighting the human and environmental impacts of the conflict.

Check out the WIGP Fall 2023 newsletter for important updates, including information about our Fall Gathering, WIGP elections, bylaws proposals, and other critical info that members should know in the runup to the Fall Gathering membership meeting on Saturday November 18.

In addition to our discussion on housing and updates from WIGP officers, committees, and local chapters, we will discuss proposed changes to WIGP bylaws. A summary of these proposed changes is that in situations where the party membership votes on decisions, voting would be conducted online and would be open to all dues-paying members in good standing, as opposed to just those members present at a particular meeting; and that local chapters may elect representatives to the WIGP Coordinating Council between annual internal party elections. The full text of these proposals will be provided in the newsletter.

The Fall Gathering is the deadline to self-nominate for officer positions, and will offer space for candidates to make their case to their fellow members. After nominations are finalized, ballots will be sent to all dues-paying WIGP members in good standing. Officer positions up for election include one Co-Chair position, Operations Treasurer, Elections Treasurer, Recording Secretary, and Corresponding Secretary, as well as Coordinating Council positions for each Congressional District and up to 8 At-Large seats. More information about these positions and their responsibilities is available on our Officers and Committees page.

Due to the ongoing pandemic this gathering will be held virtually via Zoom. Members will be sent information about how to join the gathering online after they RSVP on the event page.

This gathering will serve as the WIGP's biannual state membership meeting. All dues-paying WIGP members in good standing will be eligible to participate in decision-making and voting.
