The candidates who accepted the invitation and will be participating will be Howie Hawkins from the Green Party, Warren Redlich of the Libertarian Party and Kristin Davis of the Anti-Prohibition Party.

“We’re very happy for another opportunity for Howie Hawkins to explain the Green New Deal he envisions for New York,” said local Green Party organizer Alex White, “everyone was rushed in the last debate so it will be great to hear all the candidates who took the time to come explain their ideas in more detail.”

A number of local Greens have committed to being at the debate to show their support for their candidate, Howie Hawkins. More information on Hawkins’ campaign is at
