The Key Values of the Green Movement
The first four of these values are considered the Pillars upon which the remaining values and all Party platforms are constructed. More detailed descriptions of the Key Values can be found on the national Green Party website.
We recognize that the Earth sustains all life processes. Green ecology moves beyond environmentalism by understanding the common roots of the abuse of nature, the abuse of animals, and the abuse of people. Whatever we do to the web of life, we do to ourselves.
Social Justice and Equal Opportunity
We want to replace the worldwide system of poverty and injustice with a world free of all oppression based on class, sex, race, citizenship, age, or sexual orientation.
Respect for Diversity
We honor the biological diversity of the Earth and the cultural, racial, sexual and spiritual diversity of the Earth's people. We aim to reclaim this country's finest ideals: popular democracy, the dignity of the individual, and liberty and justice for all.
Personal and Global Responsibility
We are committed to global sustainability and international justice through political solidarity. We strive to create personal lifestyles based upon sufficiency and living lightly.
Future Focus and Sustainability
Like the Iroquois, we seek a society where the interests of the seventh generation yet to come are considered equal to the interests of the present generation. We must reclaim the future for ourselves and for our children.
