What's the Green Party? The word "Green" means more than just the environment—it means "ecology," doing what's right for healthy systems. That's why we are feminist, why we are anti-racist, why we support gender equality and gender diversity, and why we reject capitalism—and why we believe all these things are interrelated. The Green Party of Kansas City, MO is no ordinary party: we're a membership-based, dues-paying party funded by individual working-class members, not corporate and elite interests. We're committed to social, racial, economic, and environmental justice. Consider becoming a member today.

The Green Party of Kansas City adheres to the Ten Key Values of the Green Party of the United States. The first four values are the pillars of our party: grassroots democracy, ecological wisdom, nonviolence, and social justice & equal opportunity.
The Green Party is revitalizing our planet and our democracy without the corrupting influence of corporate and PAC money. In Missouri, we achieved ballot access in 2016 so we can run Greens at all levels of government, and we're continuing to build grassroots people power as well.Both capitalist major parties service the rich and Big Business to the detriment of the working class and poor. Because we believe change will come when progressive and radical people's movements decide that movement activism must also include this critical element: building our own political power outside the confines of the capitalist Democratic and Republican parties.
Social transformation in the US has always required both a social movement and a political party that reflects the agenda of the social movement. As the crises in the US continue and grow, the Green Party continues to prioritize building relationships with people engaged in struggles in order to serve as a vehicle for transformation.
This is the dawning of a new era for Green politics in Missouri and just the beginning of what we can accomplish! We have statewide ballot access until 2020. Now we can focus on campaigning up and down the ballot, challenging entrenched power with other Green Chapters across Missouri, without having to spend time on collecting signatures. We will participate in the primary elections as well now. The electoral tool we have will be our platform for boosting Green values and bringing attention to the urgent issues of our time.
With the failures of capitalism enabling a surge of right wing populism, this country urgently requires the left to build a working class party with true populist solutions that work for all. Now, more than ever, is the time for Green activists in Missouri to plug in and help build this independent revolutionary party. Join us.
