In the early 2000’s, the Green Party of New York State sued when we temporarily lost ballot status so that people get to remain in the party of their choice – even if the party itself has to run as “independents”. We are still Greens. The Green Party is continuing to function at the state and local levels. Our lawsuit is still in the courts and our lawyers are optimistic about our chances. But no matter what happens, we have to keep fighting the fight for single payer health care, combating climate change, and a more just economy. You may be getting a phone call from someone representing the Working Families Party trying to talk you into changing your registration. The establishment is trying to eliminate us because we have always been a threat to the way they maintain the status quo.
