(LAS VEGAS, Nev.) — The Nevada Green Party (GPNV) announced its support of a statement issued by the Diversity Committee of the Green Party US (GPUS).
The statement appears here in full:
The Diversity Committee of the GPUS requests that Greens learn the basics about the new committees and radical opinion groups that seek to splinter/fragment the Green Party.
Background information about these different organizations and their founding members is critical for Greens to be well aware of, to prevent further confusion and unneeded conflict from these highly controversial groups that have been actively trying to segregate the Green Party by gender orientation, and to use political pressure to refuse to obey our own platform beliefs and goals.
These groupings include the self-proclaimed committees Dialogue Not Expulsion (DNE), the Emergency Committee to Save the Green Party, and Gender-Critical Greens Political Action Committee (GCGP). All three are anti-transgender/anti-transwoman extremist pressure groups that seek to instigate chaos within the party with their dogmatic thinking against transpeople’s rights, and their destructive and militant approach to conflict.
DNE has members who have been and continue to be involved with Womens’ Liberation Front (WOLF) and Feminists In Struggle (FIST). FIST has been filing amicus briefs to try overturning protrans court decisions like the Supreme Court Bostock v. Clayton decision, which says that one can’t be fired for being transgender or for gender identity/expression. WOLF has worked with the Republican Party to put on religion-based “ex-trans” conferences, and boasts associations with the Proud Boys. The disaccreditation of Green Party of Georgia (GPGA) somehow has not stopped this group, which claimed their initial goal was to convince the GPUS to not discredit GPGA-and therefore to give anti-trans thinking a veneer of legitimacy within the party.
The Emergency Committee sprang up during the discussion and vote regarding GPGA. Members basically likewise spam-solicited fellow Greens to try keeping GPGA from being disaccredited, and, again, to propagate the notion that anti-trans thought was a legitimate topic for discussion within the party. Finally, GPGA is an actual PAC (Political Action Committee), which is collecting money to support its anti-trans activities, and whose members have solicited support from everyone on the GPUS National Committee, often in highly misleading form. This is a calculated attempt to sabotage and create discord within the Party. We call on fellow Greens to recognize these groupings for what they are, and to reject them outright, in keeping with the GPUS platform, which members overwhelmingly rededicated themselves to in the discussions of the last 18 months.
These issues are settled. We cannot allow such groups to continue to hijack our agenda for a moment longer.
