Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also let me know if you would like to help with food or decorations.
Green Presidential Candidate Dr. Jill Stein needs your help staging visibility actions in NYC this weekend and before Tuesday. All you need is a sign and a place to stand where traffic will see it. Email karen(at)greenpartynyc.org if you want to team up with NYC Greens, and be sure to put your action on the map at JillStein.org. Dr. Stein has also produced a new tv ad and needs your donations to put it in on the air.
Jill will participate in more debates on Sunday night (moderated by Ralph Nader) and Monday evening (hosted by Free and Equal). Organize a viewing party so your friends and family can see a candidate who truly speaks to their concerns, before Election Day.
On Tuesday you can vote on Row F for the Green Party. We are running nearly two dozen candidates throughout the state. You can also find more information here, including an interview with State Senate candidate Julia Willebrand in Manhattan. See US Senate candidate Colia Clarke testify about Indian Point at an NRC hearing. The more votes we have, the stronger our voice will be heard on issues such as banning fracking of natural gas, dealing with climate change, creating green living wage jobs, and enacting single payer health care. If we get 5% of the vote nationwide, we qualify for federal funds both for this and the next national election.
The Colin Beavan for Congress campaign in Brooklyn needs volunteers for Election Day flyering near polling places in Clinton Hill and Fort Greene. Email Jonathan Fluck to find out how to plug into the 6am-9am and 5pm-8pm "rush hours", along with other shifts. Many voters head to the polls resigned to a lack of choices, unaware that Greens are providing an alternative. This is our last chance to reach them!
On Thursday, November 8th, after Election Day, join Greens for tabling at a screening of the anti-fracking film Dear Governor Cuomo, hosted by New Yorkers Against Fracking at the Ethical Culture Society on 2 W. 64th Street. The event begins at 7pm. Email gloria(at)gpbk.org to RSVP and volunteer! We are just getting started...
