The Green Party of New Jersey wishes all of our activists and partners a happy and revolutionary New Year! 2017 was a banner year for GPNJ. Our biggest success was in Brick, where Green candidate Jessica Clayton won her race for school board. Jessica ran on a platform of issues her community cares about, a progressive ideology supported by Ocean County Greens, earned a major union endorsement from CWA Local 1037, and won big. The

The world of communication has evolved and we can’t afford to set the clocks back 30 years. We no longer need a media empire to share information for us, we simply need to hit submit, and I for one, don’t want to go back to needing a printing press to distribute info. A fair and open internet is a crucial freedom we can not allow to be sacrificed on the altar of profit. For the

President Donald Trump’s proclamation recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is a provocative and dangerous policy that will have repercussions, not only in the Middle East, but around the world. This is not, however, only about foreign policy and easing tensions in the Middle East. Trump’s action will likely increase the day-to-day hardships of Palestinians in occupied territories, who already live under state sponsored oppression, into something far worse. To fully understand the impact

The Green Party of New Jersey strongly condemns the New Jersey Herald’s endorsement of Assemblyman Parker Space. In addition, the Green Party of New Jersey demands the removal of editorial staff responsible for the utterly inappropriate and unacceptable language published in justification of their endorsement of Assemblyman Space. In August of this year, Space made national news by posting a picture of himself in front of a confederate flag emblazoned with a picture of Hank

In the wake of the statements made by former interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile in her recent book, the Green Party of New Jersey would like to remind the citizens of New Jersey that we take no corporate money, and our grassroots organizing approach prevents big party bosses from making shady deals. Why does that matter? A decentralized approach works, especially when the people involved share values like ours. The National Green Party provides resources,

     Much of the statewide focus this election season has been on the gubernatorial debates, which excluded the five candidates who did not raise at least $430,000, such as Green Party candidate Seth Kaper-Dale. While protesting the closed debates that took place on October 10th and October 18th, Kaper-Dale spoke about his campaign: “We have raised over $100,000, and we have spoken with people all around the state.

On Tuesday evening, a meager number of people showed up up for an uninspiring display of our sham Democracy at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark. The Garden State holds 1 of only 2 Governor’s races in America  this year, yet barely any attention is being paid by residents who do not see either capitalist candidate as someone who understands working class issues. From the Republican side of the duopoly Lt. Gov.

Last night’s Our Revolution Passaic County meeting was originally billed as a meet the candidates event. A representative from The Green Party of New Jersey had been e-mailing Dianne Douthat, one of their Steering Committee members, since last week to see if they would allow the Seth Kaper-Dale/Durden Campaign or a liaison to speak. They did not respond to multiple attempts at contact. When activist Craig Cayetano from the Green Party of Passaic County arrived,
