If you missed our monthly meeting on March 8th, Elizabeth Henderson's & Tonya Noel's talk on Food Justice was incredible.  The video of that conversation is below.  From that, we constructed a platform plank that you can see here.


As promised, from our monthly meeting on February 8th, a team of Greens and Green-minded people developed GPOMC's platform plank on Police Accountability.  Here's video from the February 8th monthly meeting.  Members of the Police Accountability Board Alliance discuss where we are in terms of Rochester getting a REAL PAB.


If you weren't able to make it to the January 11th meeting, Rohith Palli & Alice Carli from Campaign for New York Health were our guest speakers.  They went through just how we can get single payer health care in New York State.  It's closer than you think.  Take a look at their presentation from that meeting.


Did you miss our monthly meeting in December?  Here's video of the conversation we had on our community's overdose pandemic.
