Caucus for Jill Stein!
Every two years, we officially convene municipal caucuses as part of the requirements to maintain status as a state-recognized political party, with the benefits of a ballot line for our presidential nominee, and a checkbox on the state's voter registration form. However, caucuses are the statutory mechanism by which party municipal committees are formed. For municipalities that don't have a town or city Green Independent committee, a caucus can be convened at any time of the year for the purpose of forming the municipal committee.
Caucuses are an excellent opportunity for us to grow the party, recruit new members and run local candidates in your municipality.
With Jill Stein as our presidential nominee on the 2016 election ballot, we have a great opportunity to caucus and organize locally on her behalf. What better way to contribute to her campaign, then to gather together Greens in your town for a caucus, and begin organizing literature drop-offs, phone-banking, sign delivery and even fun activities such as concerts and forums to increase awareness about the Green New Deal and why our candidate offers the best solutions for America.
WE NEED YOU. Will you help us do this vital work, by holding a caucus in your town? If you don't see your town listed on our "local groups" page, then please contact us using our contact form, for more information on how you can help form one. Only a resident Green Independent of a municipality can convene the caucus in that municipality, so WE'RE COUNTING ON YOU to be the founder of your town or city's Green Independent committee ...

The Maine Green Independent Party (MGIP) has joined the Maine Prisoner Advocacy Coalition to endorse Fair Chance legislation, also known as “Ban the Box”. Fair Chance is a national movement seeking to remove unjust and discriminatory barriers to employment for those who have been convicted of a crime. One such barrier is the conviction history check-box on job applications. Fair Chance asks to remove the box and delay conviction history inquiries until later in the hiring process, making it more likely applicants will be fairly evaluated on their qualifications. As gainful employment is the single most important factor in reducing recidivism, Fair Chance would enhance public safety, and also improve the lives of families who depend upon the estimated 70 million adults with arrest and conviction records. The MGIP is proud to support this important legislation. For more information about Fair Chance, please visit the Maine Prisoner Advocacy Coalition website at : http://www.maineprisoneradvocacy.org/Continue readingThe Maine Green Independent Party believes health care is a human right, not a pay or die commodity. Too many in our communities go without the care they need, or are burdened by crushing medical debt.
