|Greetings Greens and supporters,
It’s been awhile since we’ve checked in with you, and we hope everyone’s stayed safe and healthy during this challenging spring and summer. There have been fewer Green Party of Brooklyn emails lately, but there’s been a lot of Green Party activity! NYC Greens raised their voices in outrage in the streets and the media after the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police Department.

The Green Party of the U.S. held its first-ever completely virtual Presidential Nominating Convention, on July 11, with 21 New York delegates attending. You probably know about our amazing presidential ticket of Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker. Make sure to visit their website right now and sign up for campaign news, because there’s a lot happening that you won’t want to miss. Read on for campaign events coming up this month. We look forward to seeing you!
Wednesday, September 16, 7 pm GPBK holds our first virtual meet-and-greet, including a conversation about our presidential campaign. Make this event a success and join us! RSVP and we’ll send you the Zoom link.
Sunday, September 20, 1 pm Kick off Climate Week NYC by joining Howie and our Green Party contingent at the Climate Justice through Racial Justice march and rally. Starting at “Columbus Circle,” the event will make clear the intersection of climate and racial justice, with an emphasis on racial justice setting the tone for the week of actions. The goal is a contingent of at least 25 Greens, so please sign up. The campaign will provide signs and literature. More details to follow!
September 18-20 is the Hawkins-Walker campaign NYC weekend, with three socially distanced events you can participate in:
- Friday, 9/18, 11 am March with Howie from Wall Street to City Hall and attend his press conference. Howie and dozens of community members rally at the Federal Hall National Memorial on Wall Street to demand billions of Stock Transfer Tax funds be used to bail out small businesses—not Wall Street—and pay for essential services like health care, education, and climate mitigation.
- Saturday, 9/19, 6 pm Howie Hawkins and Margaret Kimberley, journalist, author, and senior columnist of the Black Agenda Report, are special guests at a socially distanced, backyard campaign fundraiser. Labor rights organizer and vice presidential candidate Angela Walker also joins the event virtually. Hors d’oeuvres and beverages served.
