The Green Party of the United States Black Caucus is looking for progressives to run for elected office
Angela Nicole Walker
They are creating public policy on important issues including civil rights, a living wage and reparations, affordable housing, alternative voting systems, and peace. They are advocating for peace and opposing urban sprawl and expansion of corporate power, while destroying our neighborhoods with gentrification. Green office holders ran to make an immediate impact on their communities as town council members, county commissioners, school board members etc. These Greens reached out to voters of diverse backgrounds, brought together coalitions of community organizations and individuals to begin to reclaim their local governments.
The growth and movement of the Green Party will continue in 2021 and beyond, where all across the country Green Party candidates will be challenging the two establishment parties.
2021 will be a great time for candidates to learn the art of running for office, and a smart, energetic candidate can win, during the Covid-19 pandemic. You can run too. Please consider becoming a candidate for elective office next year. We especially encourage people who are under-represented in elective office to consider running, esp the community of people of African ancestry whose family members were held in chattel slavery in what is now the United States of America. If you or someone you know is considering running, please contact your state Green Party, or local chapter. Links to state party and local chapter websites can be found here.
We are also looking for people to work with these candidates: campaign coordinators, managers and other campaign volunteers.
The Green Party is a grassroots activist party working for social change based on our Ten Key Values.
