We are looking for Greens to run for elected office in 2016! All across the country hundreds of Green Party candidates will be challenging the two corporate parties. This will be a great time for someone to learn the art of running for office. Many local races are often uncontested; winning can be as easy as filing for office. We are looking for people who are under-represented in elective offices such as women, African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, gays, lesbians, trans people, people with disabilities, and young people. We are also looking for volunteers to work with the candidates.
Green office holders all over the country are hard at work for the voters who elected them. They are creating public policy on important issues including civil rights, a living wage, affordable housing, alternative voting systems, peace, and the environment. They are opposing urban sprawl, fracking, and expansion of corporate power. Green office holders ran to make an immediate impact on their communities as town council members, county commissioners, and school board members. These Greens reached out to voters of diverse backgrounds and brought together coalitions of community organizations and individuals to begin to reclaim their local governments.
* The filing date is fast approaching for many city council races. Filing dates vary for municipal offices. Please check with your local Board of Elections.
We are here to assist you! Please fill out this form and our organizer will be in touch with you soon.
Thanks and Go Greens!
