Special speakers: Jill Stein, 2012 Green Party candidate for President, will talk about her experiences campaigning across America in 2012 & Rosa Clemente, the 2008 Green Party candidate for Vice-President, and nationally known community organizer, independent journalist and hip-hop activist will give her take on what we need to do in this political moment.
