Six Powerhouse Green Candidates Poised For Breakthrough!
The time has never been better for a Green breakthrough! And The Green Party of the United States Coordinated Campaign Committee has singled out 6 candidates that deserve your immediate support.
Please take a quick look at these 6 high powered, inspirational Green campaigns across the country. You can give all of them the boost they need with a single click of your mouse by making a contribution today to the Green Party campaign fund.
We are sending this request to every Green we know in the United States. Your donation, wherever you are from, can help these candidates in the home stretch. No donation is too small.
As you know, America is at the breaking point. A recent poll showed 50% of Americans consider themselves political independents! And the percent of Americans who identify as Democrats or Republicans have dropped to new all-time lows of 29% and 21% respectively.
That makes our platform more timely than ever. Greens are pioneering critical policies like strong local schools, municipal utilities, public banks, support for small businesses and worker cooperatives. We call for millions of jobs to achieve 100% clean renewable energy by 2030, Medicare for All, and requiring the wealthy few to pay their share of taxes.
By offering the solutions we need in our communities, these trailblazers are standing up for Americans being thrown under the bus everywhere by politics as usual. Your donation will help get the word out to the voters clamoring for what these candidates represent.
And most of these candidates are YOUNG! These are the fresh new faces that are bringing the Green Party to future voters in communities all across the country. Even if they are not running in your town or district, these are people who can continue to change the color of politics in America to Red, White, and Green! We all have a stake in their races.
The CCC will take the donations from this email and distribute them among the candidates.
But time is short. Election day for all 6 is November 3. Please Donate Now to support all of these candidates at the most critical final leg of their fight - which is our fight.
Together we're unstoppable.
2012 Green Party Vice Presidential Candidate
P.S. Because this is not a presidential election year, it's harder for these candidates to raise money. But these are the very races that have a huge impact on local quality of life. And these are the people who can move up into higher office over time. Please, be generous. Donate today. Every amount will help!
Election day is next week!

They are given jail time instead of the treatment they need. Molly has worked hard watching police video of motor vehicle stops and interrogations and listened to police radio transmissions transcribing what was said.
