Maryland Green Party U.S. Senate nominee Margaret Flowers was profiled by MintPress News.
Flowers said that while she is “supportive of the Green Party’s national agenda,” she “is primarily focused on building local political power.” Flowers said, “It’s really organizing within neighborhoods to empower them to look at what their needs are look at what their resources are and look at how we can harness all of that.”
Flowers “views activism during this election season as a way to target the societal injustices that cause illness and other forms of suffering. ‘As a physician, you see the symptoms of the problems that we face, and I don’t want to just treat symptoms, you need to get at the root causes of why we’re facing the issues that we face.'”
