2020 Green candidates challenge at every level of government

Wed, 10/28/2020 - 8:45am

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Demonstrating an enduring commitment to building a grassroots party that contests all levels of government, at least 181 Greens in 32 states are competing for public office on Election Day, November 3rd. They follow 29 Green candidates who ran in Winter, Spring and Summer 2020 elections.

Like Green presidential nominee Howie Hawkins and running-mate Angela Walker, Green candidates for state and local office have had to fight their exclusion from candidate forums and debates while bearing the extraordinary burden of campaigning during the government’s disastrous mismanagement of the Coronavirus pandemic.

  • Democrats Are Pulling Their Punches On Extremist Barrett’s SCOTUS Nomination, Say Green Party’s Federal Candidates

WASHINGTON — Green Party candidates for federal office said today that Judge Amy Coney Barrett is out of step with the facts and most Americans’ values on the climate crisis, race, healthcare, abortion, immigration and LGBTQ rights, and so her confirmation must be blocked. Greens also said Democrats have failed to use what powers they have to fight Barrett’s nomination, preferring instead to exploit her appointment for electoral gain.

Green Party presidential nominee Howie Hawkins said the appointment of a new Supreme Court Justice should wait until after Election Day, criticizing Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other congressional Democrats for not using the minority’s parliamentary powers to delay the nomination.

Green Party Message for International Day of Peace: Support UN Call for Global Ceasefire, Repeal Authorization for Use of Military Force Act

Mon, 09/21/2020 - 7:04am

The Green Party observes the 39th anniversary of the United Nations International Day of Peace on September 21 by affirming support for the UN General Assembly Resolution 36/37 to “commit to peace above all difference.” The 1981 Resolution established the International Day of Peace with unanimous support.

Green Party leaders condemn the perpetual state of war launched, with bitter irony, on the 19th anniversary of the Day of Peace Resolution with the passage of the post-9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). Green Leaders also emphasized the party’s demand for the repeal of the AUMF, which has even greater urgency with the global crises of COVID-19 and climate disruption.
