Growing the Political Revolution: Attracting Youth to the Green Party

Green Sunday, August 28th, 5:00 – 6:30 pm
VicenteCruz

Younger voters register with the Green Party at a higher rate than do older voters, yet very few of them are actively participating with us, on our campaigns or other projects, or at our events. What can we do to get more youth to be active with the Green Party?

Tonight Vicente Cruz will lead a discussion on strategies to bring the next generation of people to move forward in power to create solutions for the struggle for the rights of all people. Vicente currently serves as the Campaign Coordinator for Don Macleay for Oakland School Board, District One. He previously was a youth and adult sports program educator — as a contractor with the Oakland Unified School District. Although he has no biological children, he has helped to raise five. He also has experience as a legal observer, an agitator/de-escalator, and as a citizen journalist. Please join us tonight as we strategize to get more youth involved with the Greens!

On the 2nd Sunday of September we also will be tabling at Solano Stroll all day — please join us!  (No Green Sunday program will be held then, and our County Council meeting will be at 2022 Blake St., Berkeley)
