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.

KC Greens Join KC Grassroots Network

The Green Party of Kansas City, Missouri voted unanimously to join the Kansas City Grassroots Network on May 3, 2018.  Social and political transformation in the US has always required strong social movements. The Green Party, as an independent, anti-capitalist political party, reflects the agenda of the social movements and its members are engaged in struggles in order to use the electoral system as a tool for transformation, revolution, change.  The Green Party is committed to bottom-up movement building and to working in solidarity, as members of the working class, with all of the oppressed and their struggles.   As a political party, our role includes running candidates, but as a relatively small and growing party, our power also resides in building and strengthening the popular movement against capitalism and class dominance, abelism, cis-hetero-patriarchy and all manifestations of oppressive and White supremacist culture. (See Building Green Party Power for more insights on this issue.) Continue reading
