We actively promote peace, through one of our key values, Non-Violence. We seek peaceful resolution to conflict, whether it be on an individual level or an international one. The US must end overseas military actions, which are carried out on behalf of corporate interests, and end domestic oppression by militarized police. History shows that violence only returns violence. The Green Party encourages its members to promote peace and provide the leadership to bring it into being.
...for the People
We work for social and economic justice, with equal and enhanced opportunity for all. We demand an end to policies that produce vast disparities of income and wealth. We insist on full and equal civil rights for US citizens and immigrants of all ethnicities, ages, orientations, and any other attribute that has been used to divide us.
...for the Planet
The Green Movement is most commonly associated with its key value of Ecological Wisdom. We pursue an end to "extremist" policies toward a livable planet for centuries to come, for human beings and all earth's creatures. The world's dependence on fossil fuels must end in order for the global climate to avoid catastrophic warming. Nuclear energy carries excessive risk; the mining, refining, and disposal of uranium is just as dirty and deadly as fossil fuel extraction. Solar and wind power, though not perfect options, represent our best current path to sustaining civilization.
We not only recognize the flaws in our governmental and electoral systems; we also propose solutions. Democracy requires an informed citizenry and a degree of self-determination: Exert popular pressure on media outlets to expand the range of discussion beyond the two corporate parties that half of US voters have rejected. Demand that state governments stop inhibiting voting and voter registration, and restore the federal Voting Rights Act to full strength. Get Big-Money influence out of our elections. Governments at all levels should embrace some form of Instant Runoff Voting, which guarantees that winners have the approval of a majority of voters.
