Meeting to establish citywide Green committee
Thurs, June 25, 6:30P – 9P, Rev Billy Talen For Mayor HQ – 250 Lafayette St.
One of the key action items that emerged from our citywide strategic planning process was to set up a citywide Green committee consisting of representatives from all five boroughs’ county organizations as well as at large members.
This committee would start by co-ordinating borough activities and pooling resources, moving toward unified branding and a citywide structure.
Our proposal is to select up to fifteen representatives – 3 from from each borough. Representatives would commit to: a) doing regular outreach to ascertain the desires and interests of Greens in their areas, and b) attending meetings and participating in working committees to further the progress of the Green Party in New York City.
Who these reps will be, how they will be chosen, a basic decision-making process, and specific initial projects to be undertaken, will be the subject of this meeting.
A couple of items to be discussed include choosing a name for this body (the recommended name is the Green Party of New York City); setting up a process whereby the group can endorse political actions and statements; and approving a piece of citywide Green literature.
Take the N,R,W trains to Prince Street, or the 6 to Spring Street, or the B,D,F,V trains to Broadway/Lafayette station (at Houston). 250 Lafayette is about two blocks south of Houston Street.
