Spring Into The 2021 Annual National Meeting! July 15-18: Registration Now OPEN <[link removed]>



<[link removed]>



Online Annual National Meeting Will Focus on Anti-Oppression and Anti-Racism Training



The 2021 Green Party Annual National Meeting (ANM) will be held online, as the world's recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet ready to guarantee a safe, in-person meeting.



We will miss the opportunity to share space with Greens from across the country but we can take this online gathering as an opportunity for truly national work on some of the most pressing challenges for this party. We hope you will join us from July 15-July 18 in the spirit of this year's theme, "Dismantling Oppression, Building Solidarity: A Green Party For Everyone."



Our registration form is now online. <[link removed]> Registration fees will cover comprehensive training on anti-racism, anti-oppression and solidarity necessary for building our party as a powerful, equitable force for the liberation of all. Your fees also provide for the infrastructure and staff necessary to produce an online national meeting from multiple locations, plus online workshops, news conferences and more.



We will also dedicate resources to accessibility assistance, such as for the vision-impaired, hearing-impaired and lack of access to a computer or Internet connection.



Financial assistance in the form of a reduced or waived registration fee is available <[link removed]>on the registration form. <[link removed]>The Green Party strives to allow any Green to attend our national meetings. As the only political party that refuses corporate donations, we acknowledge a registration fee can be a financial burden for some Greens. Therefore, we never turn anyone away because of the cost of registration.



Do you or someone you know have expertise in Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression Training?



- Request For Proposals For Independent Consultant re: Anti-Racism & Anti-Oppression Training (DUE APRIL 9) <[link removed]>





- Request for Proposals for Green Party Trainer(s) re: Anti-Racism & Anti-Oppression Training (DUE APRIL 9) <[link removed]>







Deadline For Participant-Submitted Workshops Extended to April 16



Working with expert facilitators in the area of Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression training means reduced program time for participant-submitted workshops. However, in recognition of the importance of these as part of our ANMs, some time will be allocated for workshops. <[link removed]> Any topic on Green Party work may be submitted <[link removed]> with the requirement that Anti-Oppression content is embedded in the workshop presentation.



Submit your workshop online by April 16. <[link removed]>



—Michael O'Neil, GreenLine Editor and Green Party Communications Manager















Earth Day to May Day: Ten Days of Action For Ecological and Economic Justice



The Green Party Eco-Action Committee is calling on all Green Party state parties, locals and supporters to participate in ten days of events on climate change, environmental and social justice and labor issues from April 22 through May 1. Many of these actions can be online and educational events. However, safely-conducted outdoor actions are also highly encouraged, wherever possible.



Giving the Power to the People



Our theme for this nationally-coordinated series of actions will be Giving the Power to the People: Stop Climate Chaos and End the War on Workers and the Poor. This theme encompasses dire environmental topics, and celebrates worker resistance to corporate power.



We want to focus on events that are organized by Greens to build focus and support for the Green Party as the only national party that does not compromise on issues of life or death. We will be calling on greater public and local control of energy and polluter industries. We will also support cross-sectional issues such as living wages for essential workers and a comprehensive economic plan that addresses unemployment, enacts a national healthcare service, and puts people to work in jobs that will combat both climate catastrophe and living standard insecurity.

Green Party Takes On HR1/S1 Poison Pills, Fights For Voter Choice



HR 1, also known as the “For The People Act,” is sold as a way to get money out of politics and to protect voters, but it contains <[link removed]>several poison pills for democracy <[link removed]> and opposition parties like the Green Party. <[link removed]> Most alarmingly, HR1 quintuples the amount of money Green presidential campaigns will be required to raise to qualify for federal matching funds: from $5,000 in each of 20 states to $25,000 per state.



The Green Party stands opposed to the anti-democracy poison pills in HR 1, a package that is sold as a “voting rights” bill but would actually undermine everyone's right to organize electorally against the parties of War and Wall Street. In a recent Gallup poll, a record 62% of US voters said we need a new major party.

Green Party of Pennsylvania Stands with #BAmazon Workers







[These remarks were given on March 20, 2021, by Hillary Kane, Green Party of Philadelphia Treasurer, at a rally in support of Amazon workers trying to unionize in Bessemer, AL.]



Thank you to the organizers of today’s march and rally for allowing me to speak.  I represent the Green Party, an independent political party.  The Green Party often co-sponsors rallies such as these, joining in the fight for better working conditions, but we rarely get invited to share the podium because of deep seated fears of independent politics.  Politics that doesn’t go along with the status quo - the two-party system, or in this city, let’s be real -- a one-party system.



You may know the Green Party as an environmental party and we are.  But we are also a party rooted in social justice.  We were founded over 30 years ago to give political voice to people’s movements – like this one against corporate greed and corruption.  That same corporate greed is killing both the planet and the people. The Green Party links the ecological crisis with the economic crisis of people not having enough to provide basic necessities for themselves and their families.  This is why we developed ideas like the Green New Deal – putting people and planet together over profit.  Putting people to work, in living wage jobs – jobs that repair and restore our environment rather than use it up and spit it out.  Howie Hawkins, our most recent Presidential candidate and himself a retired Teamster, was the first to run on the Green New Deal back in 2010. The real Green New Deal funded by deep cuts to the military.

North Carolina Green Party Joins #BAmazon Solidarity Actions at Amazon Facilities







On Saturday, February 20, several NCGP members participated in #BAmazon Solidarity actions coordinated by the Southern Workers Assembly outside of Amazon warehouses in Charlotte <[link removed]>, Kernersville <[link removed]> (Triad), Raleigh <[link removed]>, Durham <[link removed]> and elsewhere. They held signs and participated in distributing flyers to Amazon workers about the Bessemer warehouse vote during their shift change. In general, the Amazon employees who stopped to take flyers were extremely receptive, and many were unaware of such unionization efforts, particularly in the South.

Re-Elect Cam Gordon! Minneapolis Green Party City Council Representative Needs Your Support







Visit camgordon.org/join <[link removed]> to endorse the United States' preeminent elected Green official and find other ways to support Cam's re-election!



From Cam:



This year has been the hardest Minneapolis has seen in a long time. The murder of George Floyd, the unrest and destruction that tragedy ignited, the pandemic and economic recession it caused, the ongoing housing crisis. The crises we’ve faced in 2020 have been traumatic for us all, and the impact of these crises has fallen hardest on our poor and BIPOC neighbors. But it has also shown us all something powerful: we care for each other.
