Volunteer Highlight: Jo Ann Greenberg

Hi, everyone! My name is Jo Ann Greenberg and I live in the Brookside neighborhood of Kansas City with my husband Bob Hill. I'm a retired veterinarian – that was my second career after getting a master's degree in chemistry and working in a research lab for a few years after grad school. I owned a small animal practice in Brooklyn, NY for 18 years before moving back to KC where I grew up. Since retirement, I have been teaching myself to bake – I collect cookbooks (mostly from estate sales) and am trying to branch out in other forms of cooking. Continue reading

An Open Letter to the Transportation Secretary

Hello Mr. Buttigieg, I am an Uber and Lyft driver. It has occurred to me that something has to be done about traffic. There is too much congestion. And so an idea has come to me. Continue reading

Techno Utopians and Dystopians

For decades, there has been, and continues to be, a split in the "ecology" movement. This divide has on one side the techno-utopians who feel that humanity's negative impacts on the Earth’s ecosphere can be corrected with new technology (wind/solar/nuclear/biofuel power, carbon capture, carbon-offsets, terraforming, etc.) that will allow us to continue our growth-based, capitalist society and lifestyles largely untouched. On the other side you have techno-dystopians who contend that humanity, due to our technological ingenuity, has grown more and more out of balance with the natural world since at least the Agricultural Revolution about 10,000 years ago (taking more than we give back to the Earth).

GreensKC Calls for Regulation of Non-Owner Occupied Short-Term Rentals

The Green Party believes that decent housing is a fundamental human right. Therefore, the Green Party strongly encourages the proper regulation of the housing market as well as the wide expansion of public housing to meet this goal. One of the first steps to work toward this goal is to curtail the hoarding of housing stock by wealthy speculators and developers.  One of the ways this can be achieved is by regulating against the owning and managing of housing as short term rentals by absentee owners.  To this end, the Green Party should stand with and endorse this multi-group effort toward this shared goal by adding our statement in support.

GreensKC Supports the Don't Extradite Assange Campaign

The imprisonment of Julian Assange is a threat to press freedom, which is already under attack on multiple fronts; as well as a threat to freedom of any speech or affiliation. Shooting the messenger should never be a thing, even if you disagree with the message. We should never lock people up for saying things that the governing elites don't want to hear. This is violence and we oppose violence. Continue reading

KC Greens Endorse Proposition B

On October 4th, 2018 the Kansas City- Heart of America Green Party chapter voted to endorse a ‘yes’ vote on Proposition B in the November 2018 General Election. A ‘yes’ vote supports increasing the state's minimum wage each year until reaching $12 in 2023 and then making increases or decreases based on changes in the Consumer Price Index. The KC-HOA Green Party recognizes the efforts put forth by communities of workers to push this initiative to the ballot. Proposition B is aligned with the Missouri Green Party’s State Platform which demands, “Jobs for all at a living wage. Provide jobs for all that pay living wages as determined by the local community for all workers.” (Economic Plank 3a., 2018). KC-HOA Greens will continue to support laws and policies which value the well-being of individuals and communities above corporate profits.  While we support the increase in minimum wage that will affect thousands of Missourians across the state, we do not think this type of change sufficiently addresses the failures of this economic system which is based on greed and the exploitation of people and planet.  KCHOA-Greens continue to work for our vision of an eco-socialist future of justice for the people of Missouri.
