  • Green Party's Jill Stein visits Cincinnati on heels of Clinton

    Cincinnati hosted two female presidential candidates on Monday. Hours after Hillary Clinton took the stage at the NAACP convention, Green Party candidate Jill Stein addressed a crowd of about 75 people at a Clifton restaurant. Her speech focused on "the good news" that Green Party policies were attainable. She spelled out how clean energy, student loan forgiveness, free higher education and safer streets were all possible by drastically reducing military spending, reallocating subsidies and creating a truth and reconciliation commission to address the "the living legacy of slavery." Stein criticized both Clinton and Donald Trump. She said "invading other countries" has contributed to immigration problems and terrorism, and targeted Clinton for her military policies.

  • Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party Presidential candidate to be in Cleveland, July 17, 2016

    Dr. Jill Stein will be in Cleveland to attend the National Convention of the Oppressed where she will appear with Dr. Cornel West.  A reception for Dr. Stein will take place at 4 pm at 2002 W. 41st Street, Cleveland, OH, where supporters and the press are invited to meet her.

    In Dr. Stein’s words,  “Americans deserve real solutions for the economic, social and environmental crises we face. But the broken political system is only making things worse. Itʹs time to build a peopleʹs movement to end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy;
    and recognize the dignity and human rights of every person. The power to create this new world is not in our hopes; it’s not in our dreams —itʹs in our hands.”

  • Green Party of Ohio statement on police-involved killings

    Cleveland, OH: The Green Party of Ohio abhors the recent killings by members of law enforcement that occurred in Baton Rouge, LA and St Paul. MN.

    The deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile stand as but the latest stark reminder that, in the black community, there is a justifiable fear of law enforcement, as those charged with protecting and serving the public are all too often prone to use lethal force at the slightest provocation, or sometimes, with no provocation at all. Data shows that minority members of our society suffer disproportionately under our legal and penal system.

  • The Green Party demands justice after latest killings by police

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders expressed shock and revulsion after the killings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La., and Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minn., by police officers earlier this week, as well as sympathy for the victims' loved ones.

    Greens have demanded justice for these and other incidents of police murders of black people, with vigorous prosecution of officers and investigation of police departments that tolerate racist and violent behavior. Green Party leaders are supporting proposals for a federal database that tracks police killings and denial of funding for police departments with a pattern of abuse.

  • Gadell-Newton is the anti-establishment candidate running for State Representative 18th District

    If the 2016 election cycle of chaos has taught us anything, it’s that anti-establishment candidates are a future choice against the two political parties which have been entrenched for far too long.

    Instead of holding their nose when they vote, progressives are turning away from the Democratic party. They are seeking candidates truly in line with their beliefs. Bernie Sanders, of course, has become the face of the left’s history-shattering movement. Unfortunately for conservatives, their predicament is flat-out disturbing.

    No surprise is how this new-found focus for a true progressive is surging not just on a national level but locally, too.
