Welcome to the March Newsletter of the Santa Clara County Green Party
With the arrival of Spring we can't help but be rejuvenated and hopeful for the future of our world. No doubt there is enough daily bad news to bring us down. Yet we are hopeful, because our work in the Green Party, is the actual expression of HOPE against stacked odds! We belief that TOGETHER, we will claim our democracy back and have the government we truly deserve. From February, the month of PEACE and LOVE, we are moving into March, the month of COMPASSION! Please join us in serving our communities, in any way available and possible.
We can ONLY do better, if we ALL do better. People, Planet and Peace Over Profit.Read more
We have arrived at the month of LOVE and our government is sharing no love with the seven countries we continue wage war and occupation in. We are dedicating February to PEACE, one of the four pillars of the Green Party, and we are gearing up for our Divestment Community Forum and many anti-war street rallies for peace. What we need in our world is more peacemongers, so we are getting our community engaged in the PEACE MOVEMENT. Please join us at our events and help put People, Planet and Peace Over Profit.
January was an active month for the Green Party of Texas. We filed with TX SOS to seek 2018 ballot access. Many Greens across Texas participated in the national Women's March activities including the Harris County Green Party with the Houston Women’s March. Many Greens across the country spoke to our Green vision and platform at Greens speak out on the State of the Union. This series offers good insight into what it means to be Green. The Green Party nationally offered it's response to Trump’s State of the Union.Read more
Happy 2018 to all Greens and Greens-at-heart. We begin this year with a renewed commitment to bring the message of People, Planet and Peace Over Profit to our communities. Our work will be guided by the Green Party's four pillars of Social Justice, Democracy, Ecology, and Peace.
We truly believe that if everyone in our country could make a free and informed choice about their political party, they too would be Green! Because fundamentally, we all share the Green's HUMAN values! Please begin this year with us by renewing your support and commitment to our mission and shared values. If you are not already a registered Green, take the leap and register to join the original people's party.
If you missed the December monthly meeting, fear not. We taped our guest speaker, Dave Attridge from Recovery Now, NY – including the Q&A section – and you can watch it on YouTube at https://youtu.be/1pToHVfZ1Ak. Folks who were at that meeting were interested in creating a local platform plank for the Green Party of Monroe County and that process is in progress. We hope to have something for registered Greens to vote on at the next monthly meeting. That meeting happens to be…
Join us on Thursday, January 11th at 7:00 pm at the Flying Squirrel Community Space, 285 Clarissa Street in Rochester.
It’s going to be a meeting full to the brim as our guest speakers will be Alice Carli and Rohith Palli from the local chapter of the Campaign for New York Health. We will be discussing ways to get Single Payer Health Care in New York State. There will be action to take at this meeting, so it won’t be just talk. Just like last month, we hope to have a group of people (of any and all political persuasions) who would be interested in creating a Green Party local platform plank on health care.Read more
