WASHINGTON, DC - The Green Party of the United States will hold its 2014 Annual National Meeting at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, from Thursday, July 24 to Sunday, July 27.

The 2014 meeting will mark the 30th anniversary of the first national get-together of Greens, which took place at Macalester College. The first national Green organization was founded at that meeting, the decentralized Green Committees of Correspondence, with the goal of organizing local groups and working towards a Green political organization.

The Ten Key Values adopted by the Green Party were put forth during the 1984 meeting (http://www.gp.org/10-key-values).

The 2014 meeting will feature Green Party panels, workshops, meetings of the Green National Committee, and other events. Many Green candidates running in 2014 and elected officials are expected to attend. Greens will also discuss the party's involvement in 2016 elections.

The meeting is open to the media and public. A credentialing page for reporters, bloggers, and other members of the media interested in covering the meeting will be posted online soon.

The Green Party is currently participating in the Global Climate Convergence: Earth Day to May Day, 2014 (http://globalclimateconvergence.org), with events and actions across the U.S.

More information about the Green Party's 2014 Annual National Meeting will be announced in the coming months.
