The 2016 Presidential election has left our nation reeling.
Donald Trump’s shock victory is the result of the massive failure of the corporate two-party system, which imposed a whiteout on progressive and independent campaigns while producing the most disliked and untrusted major-party candidates in history.
This toxic election has delivered a uniquely toxic result: right wing extremists, bigots and blowhards will take control of government starting in January, casting a distressing shadow over our future.
As the two-party system hits rock bottom, momentous grassroots struggles are being waged outside the political establishment: at Standing Rock, in the Black Lives Matter movement, the Fight for 15,and more. In these emerging political spaces, we can make this breaking point for the establishment a tipping point towards a new politics for people, planet, and peace over profit.
Greens are uniquely positioned to help lead the way.
From Dreamers and student debtors to pipeline resisters, people are building their voices and power in the streets. Our campaign was honored to stand with these movements on the frontlines.
Together, we can build a powerful force to resist Trump and reclaim power for the people. Greens emerged stronger than ever from this election: tripling our vote count from 2012, retaining ballot status in a record number of states, gaining countless new chapters and carrying extraordinary momentum into this year’s local elections season. We can build on the successes of local Greens, from Richmond, CA to New Paltz, NY, to protect our communities against Trump while cultivating the kind of organization and defiant leadership that the American people desperately need.
