Q: Isn't the Green Party just like progressive version of the Tea Party?
A: No, the Green Party is a separate political party with it's own platform and organizational structure. We have our own elected officials around the USA. Both the Republican and Democratic Party are beholden to Wall Street and are structured to silence and destroy social movements while giving lip-service to issues.
Q: Why don't the Greens just campaign as Democrats/Republicans/Independents?
A: The Green Party believes that working-class people must build their own political institutions independent of the two parties of the ruling elite in order to enact transformative progressive change for people and planet. We believe that we are stronger when we work together towards our shared values, rather than as isolated campaigns as independents.
