BUILDING A GREEN FUTURE FOR RHODE ISLAND
Now that the 2016 presidential elections are over, Green parties across the country are planning for the future. Here in Rhode Island, a small group of Greens met on Saturday, December 17 (despite the snowstorm!) to talk about our ongoing issue campaigns and plan our involvement in Rhode Island's 2018 statewide and legislative elections.

The Jill Stein Campaign in Rhode Island
Jill Stein, the Green Party's 2016 presidential nominee, visited Rhode Island in July, and again on September 23. In an event hosted by the Rhode Island College Environmental Club, Jill spoke to about 100 supporters and volunteers, at Sapinsley Hall on the RIC campus. Stein's earlier visit on July 20 included meetings with volunteers, one-on-one press interviews, a backyard fundraiser, and a rally to support the No LNG in PVD protest in Providence.
What is the Green Party?
The Green Party of Rhode Island is an independent political party, founded in 1992. Since then we've sponsored Green candidates for president every four years, as well as for Congress, lieutenant governor, the General Assembly, city and town councils, Providence mayor, and other municipal offices. The Green Party's core principles include Ecology, Equality, Democracy, and Peace. We are a state affiliate of the Green Party of the United States. Want to learn more?

Fighting for ecology and justice
Just like other political parties we sponsor candidates for office, but some of our most important work comesbetween elections, when we do grass-roots organizing on issues the other parties ignore. We fight fossil fuel pipelines and promote wind and solar. We're working to end police profiling and brutality, and put a stop to racial discrimination. We advocate your right to privacy and civil liberties. We oppose mass surveillance, and would end mass incarceration. We support legalization of marijuana (cannabis) and hemp. We are against war, and support the peace movement in Rhode Island. If you agree with us on these issues, you can help! Click this link to learn more about our issue campaigns: How to GET INVOLVED
