Go Green!

I support the Wisconsin Green Party because The Green Party is the best political body to act in accordance with my values which are integrated in its structure.  Politically, our choices as Americans are limited to 4 viable parties, unless you begin a new party.  I choose not to reinvent the wheel the Greens already built, but instead join the only non-corporate party that lives the values I believe in:

I believe democracy is the best practice for decision making in our government and our economy.

I believe all people have the potential to do great things, and we should treat everyone with fairness and respect.

I believe humans have a huge responsibility to the planet in which we live, and we ought to maintain the health of the ecosystem for human and non-human inhabitants.

I believe we don't have to base our economy on war, and that our society can achieve peace.

    Wisconsin Conservation Congress Vote Today, Monday, April 12th

     

    The Wisconsin Conservation Congress is a unique body of elected delegates publicly funded by the State to give Wisconsinites more input on issues significant to the Natural Resources Board and DNR.  Each Spring, there is a public hearing including elections and citizen input on questions posed by the DNR, advisory committees, and from citizens.  This year, there will be no hearing in person, but from April 12 at 7PM the citizen input will be open for your votes online for 72 hours from that time. Greens have supported two advisory questions appearing in Milwaukee, Dane, and Ashland Counties for the Conservation Congress to support a Green New Deal, and to improve the democratic organization of the WCC through additional District Leadership Council membership based on population. A variety of anti-mining and other questions of environmental concern will also be on the ballot in all counties.  In order to see the questions, and participate in the online public hearing questions, please follow the link: https://dnr.wisconsin.gov/about/wcc/springhearing

    The Wisconsin Green Party Needs A Mascot

    The Wisconsin Green Party decided that the turtle would be a good Green mascot for its ecological significance, its prevalence in our geographic location, and for its cultural significance in folklore.  This page is dedicated to the submissions so far to our turtle mascot contest, and a call for more turtle art.  Please email your turtles to [email protected]  You can also post them to our social media.

  • Greater Milwaukee Green Party endorses Alex Brower for Milwaukee School Board

    For some of you the name Alex Brower might ring a bell.  If so, that is because Brower was, not too long ago, endorsed by the Milwaukee Greens to run for City of Milwaukee Comptroller on a socialist platform including municipalizing our energy system, which is currently owned and controlled by the monopoly, We Energies.  Alex Brower is a fine organizer in many spaces, and he has decided to run for Milwaukee School Board this spring 2021.  

    While these positions may seem completely different to each other, Brower not only has experience in finance and banking which made him such a fantastic comptroller candidate, but also has a history with MPS.  Alex Brower was formerly a substitute teacher in the schools, became a union president, and even went on a hunger strike to secure healthcare benefits for substitute teachers.  A carryover from his comptroller campaign, Alex Brower still holds in his platform that private voucher and charter schools need to be held accountable.  He has helped to keep public funding for public use by thwarting the privatization of public school jobs, and would continue that fight.

    Vote Howie Hawkins in 2020

      

    While the political establishment has done its best to suppress the Wisconsin Green Party, we are not submitting to the anti-democracy two-party cartel.  We will continue to fight through  November and beyond for the things Wisconsinites need: universal healthcare, a clean and healthy eco-system, peace, and justice for real humans (not just corporations).

    One way you can help build the movement for these real changes is to pledge to write in Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker this November to encourage others by showing we are not alone at the ballot box. Every Green vote helps build a truly democratic political party that shares your values, and sends a clear message to politicians that the only way to earn your vote is to support your causes.

    After all the efforts to suppress our votes this year, we want to make sure all our write-in votes are counted, so if you plan to write-in your vote for Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker, please add your name to our vote pledge (you can sign the vote pledge without your name being public). We can use this information about how many people plan to write in a Green vote, and where they live, to hold election officials accountable for counting our votes.

     

    I pledge to write in Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker to help build a non-corporate political party for real change.  I refuse to let my vote be extorted by a system that is destroying our country and our world.  Instead, I pledge to stand courageously with leaders who have proven they will serve the people by advocating for the Green Party's platform for expanded Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, an Economic Bill of Rights, fully-funded public education from pre-K through university, an end to endless wars, real democracy with ranked-choice voting and proportional representation, and much more.
