The Green Party National Women’s Caucus would like to know.
The National Women’s Caucus has issued an open letter to the National Organization of Women urging support for the Green Party ticket of Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente:
The letter cites Green nominee Cynthia McKinney’s six terms in Congress and her unmatched dedication to the principles of equality and human rights championed by NOW. The National Women’s Caucus emphasizes the historical role that alternative parties have played in the struggle for women’s suffrage and rights, and notes that NOW has failed even to recognize the significance of America’s first national campaign by two women of African descent: Ms. McKinney is African American and running mate Rosa Clemente is Black Puerto Rican.
OPEN LETTER TO NOW, THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN
National Women’s Caucus of the Green Party of the United States
Sunday, September 28, 2008
Dear National Organization for Women leadership and members:
The National Women’s Caucus of the Green Party of the United States is dismayed that your recent endorsement of Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States did not acknowledge the first all-female ticket in recent U.S. history. Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente are running for President and Vice President, respectively, on the Green Party ballot line.
