Don't Throw Your Vote Away! Vote Green!


Why is there inaction in New York on climate change, and single payer health care, and real public safety, and all of the things we have been demandA flyer for a climate change rally in Albany, April 22nd in Albany NYing for decades?  The Democrats are in complete power of our state government and yet nothing of any substance has changed.  At what point do we say "Enough!"?

Whether you're a long-time Green, a used-to-be-Green, or an it's-about-time-I-become-a-Green, there are things happening that you can take part in to make actual systemic change take place.

On Earth Day, Friday, April 22nd, there is an Earth Day rally happening in Albany.  The Green Party of Monroe County is working with a host of other groups to get people there to demand real action to combat climate change. The bus is leaving Rochester at 6:30am from the Park & Ride in Fairport next to St. John Fisher College.  Please let us know if you need a ride to the pick up spot by replying to this email or calling Dave at 585-315-7687.

If you're concerned about climate change, single payer health care, Black lives, over-incarceration, housing, food justice, and on and on, we need people to vote for who will actually fight for these things.  The Green Party is proud to announce that Howie Hawkins is going to be the Green Party's candidate for Governor with Gloria Mattera as his running mate for Lt. Governor. 

In case you missed it, over the last 2 years, the Democratic Party has waged a war against third parties that their cronies in the judicial system has upheld (for now).  You may have noticed that only the smaller parties who pledge fealty to their corporate masters have been allowed to officially exist (for now).  You can readA white woman & white man with a beard at a protest more about this at Green and Libertarian Parties Open Letter to Governor Kathy Hochul.

Our legal appeal will not be heard until the fall, so in the meantime, to get Howie & Gloria on the ballot, we need the increased number of signatures on petitions - 45,000 signatures across the state.  We need your help!  Don't let the corporate parties run unopposed - let's get Howie & Gloria on the ballot so that they can fight with us for a real climate change fight, to get single payer health care passed, make housing a human right in NY, and more.

Petitioning starts on April 19th and goes through May.  We're going to have a hybrid live/remote meeting to talk about the task at hand and to train people on how to get petition signatures.  We will be meeting on Saturday, April 23rd from 1 - 3pm.  If you would like to attend, here are the details:
