Should You Donate to the Green Party today?
people who have supported us in the past are Democrats.
Democrats are busy now trying to get Bush out of office
by supporting war-supporter John Kerry, and they aren't
interested in our work to get local Greens elected, run
campaign schools and other important work that we are
doing to build a real progressive political party.
need true Greens to stand up for what they believe in
and support the party. There are 300,000 registered
Greens BUT less than 3% are supporting the Green Party
of the United States. How will we survive without their
support? We need your help.
send money today, and ask 5 of your fellow Greens to
send a donation. Even a $5 donation will help. Please
donate now and then forward this newsletter to five
Green friends and ask for your support.

We are strengthening the infra- structure of the
party so that we have a strong foundation from which to
grow. Our national headquarters has been a helpful
resource for local parties and candidates, media,
national organizations, international Greens and

response to their questions about the Green Party, our
platform and stance on issues.
Our Political Director, Brent McMillan, has been working
very hard to support ballot access work and campaign
schools and provide guidance to Green candidates. The
media team has been working on our communications effort
to get Greens in the press. This year hundreds of
articles about Greens appeared in national publications.
We are working hard to educate and inform the media
about the Greens so that they don't print misinformation
about the party.

We are also trying to raise money to support local
campaigns. Because support has been low, we haven't been
able to give as many funds to locals as we did last
