Have you thought about running for office?
Even if you haven’t, consider the following: Americans are hungry for new voices outside the political establishment. National polls show that roughly 60% of Americans - including over 70% of millennials - agree that we need a new major party.
With local elections coming up in Spring, now is the perfect time to think about running for office with the Wisconsin Green Party to help build the movement for people, planet and peace from the grassroots up.
If you're considering running for office, let us know and we'll get in touch to discuss the possibilities!
After the midterm elections, two things we can be sure of: the corporate-dominated two-party system will keep failing to bring the change our world needs, and the majority of Americans will continue to want a new party to represent their needs, hopes and dreams.
In short, Greens have a lot of work to do!
Help us build the growing movement for people, planet and peace over profit: come to the Wisconsin Green Party’s Fall Gathering membership meeting in Milwaukee on Saturday, December 1st.

We just endorsed an exciting slate of Green candidates for the 2018 elections who stand for real change: government that puts people, planet and peace over profit, and fights for a Green New Deal, single-payer healthcare, a $15/hour minimum wage, free quality public education through university, deep criminal justice reform, and more.
But before we revolutionize Wisconsin politics, we need your help to get our candidates on the ballot - which will take over 10,000 signatures total by June 1st.

Our Spring Gathering in Stevens Point was a great step forward for the WIGP. We endorsed candidates, updated our platform, revised our bylaws, and left the meeting in a stronger position to build Wisconsin’s party for people, planet and peace over profit.
We discussed and voted on substantial changes to our state party platform, including new planks on election integrity, tuition-free public higher education, criminal justice and police reform, immigration reform, affordable housing, clean drinking water, Great Lakes protection, and more. We will post the full updated platform soon - stay tuned.
We also revised our party’s bylaws, making a number of changes recommended by members of our Structure Team to improve the effectiveness of our state party. We will be posting our updated bylaws soon.
At the end of the day, we heard from candidates seeking our nomination and members were able to ask questions and engage in spirited discussion. We voted to endorse the following candidates:Read more
