"The Green Party's decentralized yet unified caucus process is driven by our local membership,” said GPPA Spokesman Tim Runkle, chair of the Lancaster County Green Party. “It ensures that our Presidential nomination will be made in a democratic and participatory manner. Our Presidential Caucus is a true demonstration of grassroots democracy. Completely self-funded and organized by our volunteers, we invite all Pennsylvanians to join us as Green Party voters. Together we will create a real alternative to the corporate party system."
GPPA will hold a Presidential Forum for interested candidates at their spring meeting in Harrisburg, PA, on March 21.
PA county Green Parties have scheduled Presidential Caucuses during April in Allegheny, Erie, Lancaster and Philadelphia Counties. A Regional Presidential Caucus for Greens in the Shenandoah Valley is also planned. Other regions and county Green Parties will announce their Presidential Caucuses soon.
The Green Party of PA (GPPA) is an independent political party that stands in opposition to the two corporate parties. GPPA candidates promote public policy based on the Green Party’s four pillars: grassroots democracy, nonviolence, ecological wisdom, and social justice/equal opportunity.
