State Platform Completed!
After a year of our Platform Committee's hard work, the membership at the August 2018 State Convention voted in six remaining planks to our State Platform! All party members had the opportunity to be involved throughout the process by joining Platform sub-committees, sending feedback on draft planks, participating in local chapter feedback on draft planks, and finally during the discussion& voting at the convention. We appreciate every one of you who put work into this project, especially the many committee members! Huge thanks to Don Fitz for leading this effort through to the end and ensuring that we came out of the 2018 convention with a full Platform! Continue reading

Historic Green Party Primary Election
Tuesday August 7th is a historic day because it is the first primary election ever for our party! Before we achieved statewide ballot access in 2016, we didn’t have primaries. This year, we also have our first ever primary race for US Senate between our members Jerome Bauer and Jo Crain! And in Jackson County, endorsed Green Party member Nathan Kline is fending off a challenge from a non-member to be our party’s County Executive candidate. So it’s very important for you to participate in the primary and help make these crucial decisions for our party. Be sure to ask for a Green Party Ballot! (The ballot may not be colored Green). Also, turn out to Vote NO on Prop A! Right to Work is wrong for our state and is aimed at weakening labor unions and the working class! Continue reading

What does it mean to "Get Money Out Of Politics?"
The Green Party sees that our political system is distorted so that the more money one has, the louder voice one has and the more access to decision makers. This is the reason for the slogan, "Get Money Out of Politics!" And it's the reason that the Green Party of the United States does not take "corporate money." But what does that mean and how does that play out practically? At our Spring 2018 state meeting, the Missouri Green Party sorted through the campaign finance quagmire and settled on clear-cut guidance for our party and candidates. Our party now requires all candidates seeking our endorsement to agree to this policy. This is just one way in which we require accountability from our candidates. Continue reading
