Welcome!

Welcome to the Green Party of Erie County, Pennsylvania!

This new chapter of  the Green Party of Pennsylvania was approved by the State Committee on November 18, 2017 at a meeting in Pittsburgh, PA.

As an official affiliate, we abide by the Green Party of PA platform.

For a thorough discussion of our issues and solutions on a national level, see the current US Green Party platform as approved by the Green National Committee, August 2016.

The Green Party is an international political movement and is founded on 4 Pillars, Ecology, Social Justice, Democracy and Peace, which form our 10 Key Values.

We care about People, Planet and Peace before profit.

The Green New Deal is a plan to immediately take action toward creating the vision of a green,  sustainable and just future for not only the USA,  but for this planet.  At this pivotal moment in history, we believe it is crucial to choose a different way.  We believe the Green New Deal is an important,  achievable step in a new,  healthier direction.  Imagine how life could be!

We do not take corporate donations,  but,  we do accept donations from real people!  As we are building this grassroots effort of the people from the ground up,  please also consider volunteering.  We need people for a government of the people!

If you live in Erie or surrounding counties,  we offer to you this third party political alternative for those who wish to create a sustainable future for this planet and all its inhabitants.  Please help us grow the Green Party for a just and sustainable world.  It is possible if we work together!

Thank you!
