  • Attention All:

    This could be the biggest and best convention we have had in years. It could be a turning point for GPNJ. This will not be your normal convention. This will be different. Many Greens have become demoralized, dispirited and feel powerless in the face of the powerful FOG, the Forces of Greed, that have hijacked our already-week democracy. But there is reason to hope: The Green Party and its mission are catching on.

    Greens are the largest and fastest-growing united political party, and people’s movement in the world. It is time we celebrated this fact. Our convention will be a celebration of our successes and a challenge to face the urgent issues and critical problems that confront us now. Conventions should be rousing, inspiring, productive and fun. People should want to come again next year. There will be a lot of audience participation. We hope to attract a lot of new members, donors, voters and volunteers. We will have a Youth Panel and develop a plan for growing our GP Youth Caucus. These young people are an inspiration to work with!

    It is up to all of us to publicize and spread the word during this week and next week. We have room for over 100 participants, so let’s fill all the seats! We have an excellent keynote speaker in Chris Hedges, a great venue at Rutgers, and critical agenda in which to engage. We need volunteers for tabling, electronics, setup, donations, logo items, greeters. So far only one person has volunteered to help. If you want to be part of helping with this ground-breaking event, reply now.
