Background

Insofar as a mission statement is critical to accomplishing an organizationís purpose and insofar as GPUS currently lacks a mission statement, GPVA proposes to amend GPUS Bylaws as follows:

Proposal

Replace Article I of the Bylaws, which reads:
 
[ARTICLE I. PURPOSE
1. Assist in the development of State Green Parties
2. Create a legally structured national Green Party Federation]
 
With the following language:
 
ARTICLE I. ORGANIZATION
Section 1-1 Name and Structure
1-1.1 The name of this organization is the Green Party of the United States (GPUS).
 
1-1.2 The GPUS is a legally structured Green Party federation of state parties and caucuses operating in the United States of America.
 
Section 1-2. Mission
1-2.1 The purpose of the Green Party of the United States is to transform government at all levels by electing Green Party candidates to office and engaging in other electoral and advocacy efforts, consistent with the Partyís Four Pillars of ecological wisdom, social justice, grassroots democracy and non-violence.
 
1-2.2 To further its mission, GPUS may nominate Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates and may approve a Party Platform. Through the operation of a National Committee, GPUS provides ongoing support to state Green parties.
 

Resources

None. Timeline: Bylaws change would become effective upon passage.
