Friend --

In 2020, Green candidates for President/Vice President, Congress, the state legislature, and local offices in New York are standing up with one voice for systemic change that puts everyday people and planet over entrenched power and profits. 

From the top of the ticket on down, Green candidates are truly independent and advocate for innovative ideas that are the necessary choice that New York voters need. They are united behind the Green Party’s Four Pillars of Peace, Ecology, Social Justice, and Democracy -- and the original authentic Green New Deal! This includes:

  • Conversion to 100% clean, renewable energy by 2030 with a public employment program to rebuild a more sustainable infrastructure in energy, waste, agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, and housing.
  • Loans and grants issued to develop local cooperative businesses and provide assistance for poor communities and workers displaced by the conversion.
  • Research focused on sustainable practices and technology with a carbon tax, a stock transfer tax, an end to fossil fuel subsidies, and a minimum 50% cut in the military budget to fund it. 

In order to enact this change, we need voters to support all of the Green candidates running in New York this year. The campaign platforms of each of them is a reflection of this unified message as it is applied to every local community in the state. Just as the candidates are united by this message, voters need to be united in their support to ensure that the future we want in this state can actually happen. 

At the top of the ticket we have the awesome team of Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker for President and Vice President. We need New York to turn out in big numbers for Hawkins/Walker this year to maintain the Green Party’s ballot line for the next two years. As a reminder, please RSVP to join us on Friday, August 21st at 7:30 PM for the NY Hawkins/Walker Team organizing meeting via Zoom
