2020 has us reflecting on the celebrations and demands for our focus as Greens. This email offers highlights of various areas of focus for 2020 and opportunities to "be seen being Green". At the end is a graphic on how you can contribute through your tax form to the Green Party of Utah with no impact on your refund. In Service To Life Campaign The GPUT has a promising candidate for Salt Lake County Mayor in 2020, Michael Cundick, Michael is a community activist dedicated to life on the planet and demonstrates this through the many projects he has initiated and/or in which he is involved. Michael's "In Service to Life" campaign is focused on green infrastructure and food independence, environmental protection, and social justice and healing. Michael’s campaign will build momentum in the coming months and we need Utah Greens to get involved. This campaign not only has the potential of helping the Green Party of Utah maintain its ballot access, but also will help build Green Party locals and community resilience. Stay tuned for more information and announcements about this campaign. Visit Michael's campaign site here.
Be Seen Being Green Utah has a rich and cohesive activist community with members focusing to end injustices in our communities, organizing, holding events, attending government and board meetings to speak out, and risking their lives by engaging in non-violent direct action. Utah Greens will continue to be among them and “be seen being Green".
Stop the Polluting Port Utah is facing a continued denial of the impact of changes in climate by our officials through the development of an Inland port, which will damage the ecosystem, increase pollution, potentially increase presence of border patrol, and will create a threat to the women and children of our communities due to increased human trafficking. The Green Party of Utah supports the Stop the Polluting Port Campaign.
