Students at Northern Michigan University in Marquette have started a College Greens chapter. Their stated mission is to “promote Green Party ideas on campus including social justice, grassroots democracy and the dissatisfaction with the amount of influence corporations have in the political process.” To find out more and get in contact, check out NMU College Greens on facebook.

Scott Laugenour, membership director of the Massachusetts Green-Rainbow Party and recent candidate for Lenox Select Committee, recently sent out this notice:
I hope those of you in Lenox will join me at this public meeting September 12, 3:30 pm, at the Lenox Library, at which the Lenox chapter of the Green-Rainbow Party will be founded. Those of you outside Lenox are welcome to be part of the founding and to get ideas for forming similar chapters in your community. Notices are being sent to all in Lenox who are current members of the Green-Rainbow Party through their voter registration or dues-paying. Posters are in various parts of the town. Thank you for your interest. It’s time for a party.
