Dear Green friends,
I’d like to invite you to an experiment in online democracy.
The Green Party of the United States is amending its platform. I volunteered to serve as the co-chair of the Platform Committee.
A number of volunteers have already joined our platform writing team – will you help too?
The Green platform represents our movement’s collective aspirations for an American society based on peace, justice, democracy and sustainability.
In the spirit of grassroots democracy, we want to maximize participation in the platform amendment process. So we’ve posted the 2004 Green platform, section by section, and we invite you to post your suggestions on how to improve it.
Read and comment on the platform. Post your suggested amendments too.
We have until February 15th to collaborate, discuss and debate, then we’ll work with you to pass on your suggested amendments to your state Green party. Only state Green parties and national party caucuses can submit amendments. The amendments must be sent to the Platform Committee no later than April 15th.
This is your chance to lend your voice to the Green Party’s vision for our world.
I hope you’ll join us today, and forward this invitation to your friends and colleagues.
Executive director, GreenChange.org
Co-chair, Green Party of the United States Platform Committee
