Green Party February Update

Meeting: Love as a Revolutionary Force
February 14th, 7pm-9pm
Flying Squirrel Community Space
285 Clarissa St, Rochester, NY

"I believe firmly that Love is a transforming power that can lift a whole community to new horizons of Fair Play, Good Will, and Justice." --Martin Luther King Jr.

"Culturally, all spheres of American life--politics, religion, the workplace, domestic households, intimate relations--should and could have as their foundation a love ethic." --bell hooks

There are many other loves than the personal. Love guides many social justice visionaries and challenges all of us to engage in the struggle for human rights and widespread social change. In this discussion we will examine love as a combination of trust, commitment, care, respect, knowledge, and responsibility, and explore the significance of embracing love in all aspects of our lives.

Please join the Green Party of Monroe County to discuss Love as a Revolutionary Force.

The Flying Squirrel Community Space is a wheelchair accessible facility. ASL & other language interpretation may be provided upon request with at least 48 hours notice.


2013 Candidate Endorsement Process

Have you ever considered running for office?  Or maybe there's somebody that you would like to see run?  We are currently seeking candidates for the 2013 General Elections in the City and suburbs of Monroe County.  Stay tuned, details regarding our endorsement process will be released shortly.


Join one of our committees and help us do the work of the Party.  Our current standing committees are our Steering Committee, Fundraising Committee, and Candidate Endorsement Committee. All skills can be used. If it doesn't look like an existing group can use you, let us know and we'll help you establish a new one.  

Forward on Climate Rally

The Green Party of the United States has endorsed the Forward on Climate rally happening in Washington, D.C. on Presidents' Day Weekend.  If you're planning on going, make sure to let President Obama know that you will not tolerate his climate inaction by joining the Green Party contingent.   For more details, see:http://www.web.gpnys.com/?p=12369.

State Supporting Members Program

Because the Green Party refuses all corporate contributions, dues-paying participants in our Supporting Members Program play a vital part in making sure our State and County Green organizations have the resources needed to build the party.  If every one of our 1,000 members in Monroe County donated $5 per month, we'd have $60,000 annually to promote social change.  So please consider donating for the future of our party and the planet: http://www.web.gpnys.com/?page_id=11602.
