The Green Party
The Green Party is a grassroots political party that unites progressive activists, advocates for social justice, environmentalists, nonviolent resisters and regular citizens who've had enough of money-dominated politics. Unlike the Republican and Democratic parties, we do not take donations from corporations or murky Political Action Committees. This is important to us so we can promise that we will always answer to the people and not to a small group of wealthy donors. Our beliefs are encapsulated in the Four Pillars below and in the Ten Key Values.
The Four Pillars of the Green Party
We believe in striving for peace and nonviolence at every level of society, whether it means building peace on our streets or ending our involvement in wars and conflicts around the world.
The environment has an enormous impact on our everyday lives and on the future. We need to clean the toxins from the air we breathe and the water we drink, and we need to fight climate change for the sake of our young people and future generations.
We cannot flourish as a people unless every one of us has the rights and opportunities to lead secure and fruitful lives. None of us should suffer from poor wages, rising bills, or any form of discrimination.
True democracy is when members of the community are empowered to make decisions on important issues that affect their lives. We need to change our political structure to answer to the people instead of a disconnected elite.

YOUR LOCAL GREEN PARTY
The Green Party is organized from the bottom up. Our work originates in our community-based local organizations, where regular people work together to build a political alternative to our current system of greed and neglect.
