Don't Throw Your Vote Away! Vote Green!

In our effort to support Housing as a Human Right in Monroe County, we're helping the Rochester City Wide Tenant Union achieve their rent stabilizing goals.  To help convince City Council to revise and enact Good Cause Eviction legislation, click HERE.


If you had the chance to see or hear Jill Stein during her recent visit to Rochester you know that we have to get the Green Party on the ballot in New York State.  (Didn't catch Jill?  Listen to her interview on WXXI here.)  And the way we do that is to get signatures on a petition.  Lot's of signatures.  And we need your help! 

This video shows you how to petition.  The deadline is May 21st, but we'll probably need the petitions a few days before that.  To get copies of the petition, email greenrochesterny at gmail dot com.


The Green Party of Monroe County denounces the cartoon and letter sent to the Monroe County Executive and members of the County Legislature on March 12, 2024.  Both the cartoon and letter were created by an individual who at the time was registered as a Green, but had no authority to represent the party.  He had incorporated graphics that implied that his message was sponsored by both the Green Party as well as the local chapter of the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL).  Neither group had knowledge of the individual’s intentions beforehand nor does either group approve of his message.

While the Green Party of Monroe County condemns this individual’s actions, we will continue to fight for an end to genocide and an end to the occupation in Palestine.

Free Palestine!

Local Petitions

In solidarity with local group who are taking actions, here are 2 online petitions that you can quickly do to help get Rent Control in the City of Rochester and to have Rochester City Council pass a resolution callingfor a Ceasefire in Palestine.

By opting into Rent Stabilization, the City of Rochester can limit rent increases on eligible buildings. That means in thousands of apartments, landlords will no longer be able to raise rents as much as they want and we can have more housing security and stability in our city!  Petition to City Council.

Letters for Palestine, Again

Even if you've already written letters to Federal representatives, there's more to do!

Some folks have been writing letters to Schumer, Gillibrand, Morelle, and even Biden, demanding they work for a ceasefire in Palestine.  Now we have another angle.

Join us this SUNDAY to hand write letters to our Federal elected representatives to tell them to do what needs to be done for a permanent ceasefire in Palestine. We'll also be writing to the NY Attorney General to get them to go after NY corporations who sell military equipment to Israel.

March to End Fossil Fuels

In case you hadn't heard, there is a March to End Fossil Fuels happening in New York City on Sunday, September 17th.  GPoMC is working to bring as many people from the Rochester area as possible there.  Our allies at Extinction Rebellion in Ithaca have a bus that is open for us to get on board.  There are 2 scenarios here:

Scenario 1:  If only a few people sign up to get on that bus in Ithaca at this Google Form then we will carpool to Ithaca to get on that bus, go to NYC, come back to Ithaca on the bus, then carpool back to Rochester.

Scenario 2:  If enough people from Rochester sign up to get on the bus at this Google Form then Extinction Rebellion will set up a 2nd bus that starts in Rochester and picks up people in Binghamton before going to NYC.

Let's get that 2nd bus!!!!  Sign up today and get at least one other person to do the same.

What's the cost?  They are asking folks to pay "whatever you can" with no one being turned away.  So sign up to join the fight to end fossil fuels.  For more info on the march, check out
