The Green Party of California invites you to join us for a discussion on EcoSocialism cohosted with the Green EcoSocialist Network (GEN).\
Many people are considering what it means to be an EcoSocialist these days. In this second presentation of our three-part series, we explore how we can build EcoSocialist programs in our own communities. Featuring Hip Hop Artist and Spoken Word Performer Shamako Noble, Guest speakers include Kali Akuno Cooperation Jackson, Misty Cross Moms4Housing, David Cobb Cooperation Humboldt, Mel Figueroa David Bond, and Green Party CA State Delegates – Noura Khouri, Nassim Nouri who will explore a number of issues including indigenous rights, housing, co-ops + solidarity economies and more. Presentations will be followed by breakout sessions focused on non-reformists reforms designed to help move us towards a general strike and ultimately an EcoSocialist future!

The third and final event in this series on April 10th, 2021, will build on the first two. This event is open to all and free, but advance registration is required at https://rebrand.ly/GreenEcoSocialism
When two parties have effectively bought and sold US democracy, it exists to serve their corporate paymasters NOT the people. The Green Party platform represents the majority point of view within the U.S. and is no longer the alternative; the Green Party is the imperative. To build political power and get on the ballot, would take over 20 years for another party–and is very difficult to do unless you have billions of dollars. Unless people stop voting for ‘lesser evil’, then nothing’s going to change and we along with the planet, are doomed. Imagine for a moment however, if we were able to effectively focus our demands on the kind of agenda and electoral infrastructure the Green Party has with a strong and unified message and everyone actually stood for and voted for what they believed in – then everything not only could, but would actually change.
