Greens At Left Forum 2015

Green Party members and leaders will be featured on almost two dozen panels at this weekend’s Left Forum conference at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan, speaking on climate change, the fight for better schools and services, independent political strategy and the nuts and bolts of running campaigns.

We will also have a table in the exhibition area, so please stop by! Can you volunteer to support our presence at Left Forum by helping to staff the table and promote our fantastic panels? Email us when you are available!

Marching to Free Oscar López, May 30 at 11am
If you are not presenting at Left Forum on Saturday morning (or are not attending Left Forum at all!) we ask you to please join the thousands who will be marching to demand the freedom of of Puerto Rican activist and icon Oscar López, a 72-year-old decorated Vietnam veteran who begins his 34th year in prison on May 29th despite having never been charged with any violent crime. He has served 12 of those years in complete, total isolation.

11am Saturday, May 30 2015: Assemble at 125th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd in Manhattan
The march will proceed to 106th Street and Lexington Avenue for a rally.
Email if you can march with your fellow Greens!
Fundraiser to Re-elect Kshama Sawant, with
Chris Hedges and Howie Hawkins, May 31 at 6pm

Kshama Sawant was elected to Seattle City Council in 2013 as an open socialist with over 90,000 votes. Since then, she has been an uncompromising fighter for working people and the oppressed, leading the way on the victory for a $15 minimum wage which has spread like wildfire throughout the country.

Support Kshama’s re-election this Sunday night at 6pm as she takes to the stage with Chris Hedges and Howie Hawkins to discuss the fight for independent political power, living wages and making the 1% pay!
