Why Green Party?
A Global Party
We are grassroots activists, environmentalists, advocates for social justice, nonviolent resisters and regular citizens who have had enough of corporate-dominated politics. The government must be part of the solution, but when it’s controlled by the 1%, it’s part of the problem. The longer we wait for change, the harder it gets. Don’t stay home on election day. Vote Green.
Ten Key Values
The Big Picture
We propose a vision of our common good that is advanced through an independent politics free from the control of corporations and big money, and through a democratic structure and process that empowers and reaches across lines of division to bring together our combined strengths as a people.
