Green Sunday: Welcoming the Next Generation of Greens – Rebranding the Green Party?

Green Sunday, November 13th, 5:00 – 6:45 pm

Welcoming the Next Generation of Greens – Rebranding the Green Party?

2016gogreen

Join us at our next Green Sunday! It will happen on November 13 in North Oakland, 5:00 – 6:45pm, and will be a “Let’s get going” roundtable discussion.

One of the most anticipated elections in our lifetime will be over, and it will be time for the “real political revolution” to begin.

This was the year Bernie Sanders popularized terms like “democratic socialism” and “billionaire class.” After the betrayal of the primaries and Philadelphia, many millennials participated in DemExit and registered Green, activating and reactivating Green Party locals in counties around California.

The new young Greens — and not-so-young Greens — are working together to create what Jill Stein has called “the future we deserve.” The ideas include:

* Reaching out to high schools and colleges to expand political education for the future
* Movement schools as well as campaign schools
* Organizing around pressing issues: Black Lives Matter, environmental sanity, student debt, organic not corporate marijuana, economic justice
* Creating the Green Party to be the clear and obvious electoral arm of the social justice and environmental movements
* “People funding” — possibly the idea of dues as proposed at the Green convention in Houston
* Gathering people in engaging ways to work toward that better world we know is possible

Join us for an evening with no long speeches, and much forward movement!

FACILITATORS:

Laura Wells (former Green Party candidate for CA governor and state controller) will facilitate the roundtable discussion.
A.J. Hill will tell us about the newly reactivated UC Berkeley Greens.
Ben Emery (former congressional candidate from Nevada County) will share his experience in high school AP classes.
Invited guests include other Green activists from the Bay Area as well as from counties such as Yolo and Sacramento.

WHEN: Sunday, November 13th, 5:00-6:45 pm. Doors open at 4:45
(SAVE THE DATE for the next Green Sunday on December 11 — our annual holiday party!)

LOCATION: Niebyl-Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave. at 65th in North Oakland

DIRECTIONS: One block north of Alcatraz on the West side of Telegraph, wheelchair accessible. Buses pass by regularly. Ashby BART is approximately 7 blocks away.

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)

WHEN: Sunday, August 28, 5:00 to 6:30 pm
LOCATION: Niebyl-Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave. at 65th in North Oakland
DIRECTIONS: One block north of Alcatraz on the West side of Telegraph, wheelchair accessible. Buses pass by regularly. Ashby BART is approximately 7 blocks away.
