The Park Slope Greens organized or participated in some great events and actions this past year. We heard from Black Lives Matter leaders at our Stopping Police Murder forum; recharged our spirits with art and music at our Cultural Tribune; and joined a host of protests and actions opposing fossil fuel infrastructure and supporting social justice. Thanks to those of you who supported our local in these endeavors. Often, we partnered with the Green Party of Brooklyn, our county organization.
An important task for a political party is to have robust, active county organizations, especially as our party enters into a presidential election year.
The coordinating committee of the Park Slope Greens local has voted to scale back on our monthly meetings (second Monday of the month) and to plan and organize programming under the Green Party of Brooklyn. We believe that our current resources are best directed toward building and strengthening our county organization with an eye toward planting the seeds for additional locals throughout the borough to develop.
Although we will not be seeing each other at the Park Slope Methodist Church on the second Monday of every month, there will be numerous actions, events, discussions and street work to do together, including a monthly Green Pub Club at rotating locations throughout Brooklyn; quarterly Green Party of Brooklyn membership meetings with featured programming; and occasional larger events.
Our monthly Green Pub Club is coming up in just a few days!
Monday Jan. 25 beginning at 7 p.m. at Radegast Hall and Biergarten on N. 3rd Street in Williamsburg.
Next Green Party of Brooklyn meeting:
Monday, Feb. 1 beginning at 7 p.m. at the 3rd Ave YWCA near Atlantic Ave
Featuring programming around the push for a just transition to 100% clean energy
Coordinating Committee of the Park Slope Greens
Dani, Gloria, Jonathan, James, Josh, Michael, and Paul
Just a quick announcement that the regularly scheduled Park Slope Greens meeting will not take place tomorrow. Stay tuned for updates. Keep fighting the good fight!
The past month has seen several big successes, from a packed house at the Cultural Tribute to the Black Lives Matter Movement, to an impressive Green Party presence at Left Forum, and finally to a great statewide meeting yesterday afternoon.
Now it’s time to ramp up our local organizing. Jill Stein will launch her campaign for President in the coming weeks, and this summer and fall will see a huge coalition of grassroots groups plan to “Flood the System,” with a coordinated series of actions calling out our economic system as the root cause of the climate crisis, leading up to the November UN summit in Paris. Greens are planning to participate in the Climate Mobilization Teach-In next Sunday and we have decisions to make on the message we want to spread at upcoming street fairs.
On a related note – Sunday, June 21 we will be tabling at the Seventh Heaven Street Fair which is always a lot of fun and well attended. Please contact email@example.com to sign up to help.
