The Green Party of the United States is looking for progressives to run for elected office

They are creating public policy on important issues including civil rights, a living wage, affordable housing, alternative voting systems, and peace. They are advocating for peace and opposing urban sprawl and expansion of corporate power. Green office holders ran to make an immediate impact on their communities as town council members, county commissioners, school board members etc. These Greens reached out to voters of diverse backgrounds, brought together coalitions of community organizations and individuals to begin to reclaim their local governments.

The growth and movement of the Green Party will continue in 2021, where all across the country Green Party candidates will be challenging the two establishment parties.

2021 will be a great time for candidates to learn the art of running for office, and a smart, energetic candidate can win. You can run too. Please consider becoming a candidate for elective office next year. We especially encourage people who are under-represented in elective office to consider running; women, African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans, gays and lesbians, people with disabilities, young people and other minorities. If you or someone you know is considering running, please contact your state Green Party, or local chapter. Links to state party and local chapter websites can be found here.

We are also looking for people to work with these candidates: campaign coordinators, managers and other campaign volunteers.

The Green Party is a grassroots activist party working for social change based on our Ten Key Values.
