Who We Are

The Green Party is composed of grassroots activists, environmentalists, advocates for social justice, nonviolent resisters, and regular citizens who've had enough of corporate-dominated politics. Our goal is to be the electoral wing of the nation-wide movements against war and corporate power. To see how our platform differs from that of other parties, see The Real Difference.

Greens provide real solutions for real problems, because our members are locally-based activists just like you. Whether the issue is universal health care, corporate globalization, alternative energy, election reform, or decent, living wages for workers, Greens have the courage and independence necessary to take on the powerful corporate interests.

The Federal Elections Commission recognizes the Green Party of the United States, and we have had successful candidates running in many states from California to Colorado to Maine. We also are part of a global Green movement, with shared ecology and justice-focused values. Some of these Green Parties have received enough popular votes from their countrymen to serve at the highest levels of their respective governments. With your help, we will be able to be able to say the same in 2008 and beyond.
