On this May Day The Green Party of New Jersey-GPNJ stands with and in solidarity to all workers across this state and country! This pandemic continues to show the cracks in the capitalist economy and pulls back the thin veil hiding the strain on our critical medical care system, food supply and all necessary resources.
The Green Party of New Jersey- GPNJ has continued to organize and advocate for those affected during this ongoing Covid-19 crisis and has their Annual Convention streaming online tomorrow Saturday, May 2nd via Zoom from 1-4pm EST. Here is the link to sign up to attend virtually.
The Annual Convention is when new leadership is elected, caucuses and committees report and by-law amendments are heard. GPNJ’s newly formed YES-Young Ecosocialists Caucus will announce the results of their officer elections at the convention. They welcome Margaret Kimberley as guest speaker. Margaret Kimberley is the author of the recent book Prejudential: Black America And The Presidents. Craig Cayetano-Cayetano4council, one of the current state co-chairs, will be moderating the event live streamed in partnership with New Jersey Revolution Radio. Madelyn Hoffman-Hoffman For Senate will also speak about her campaign for NJ US Senate this fall. She is still seeking New Jersey registered voters that haven’t signed any other Senate candidate petition to sign online via this link.
The Convention overlaps with the 2020 Green Party Presidential Primary Nomination. Due to the Covid-19 crisis changes in procedures had to be made. GPNJ moved the process to select their presidential candidate to an online ballot request as well. Ballots were emailed to registered and dues paying Greens this past Wednesday and can be submitted until May 5th 2020 at 11:59pm. If you are a registered or dues paying member and haven’t received your ballot you must follow the link through the Convention page on the main website. This link includes the convention agenda, Presidential candidate videos and the steps to sign up to request the ballot.
The Green Party of New Jersey had over 11,214 registered Greens as of March 1st, 2020 and will continue to grow with your support and participation! You can still complete a NJ Party Affiliation Form and email it to the GPNJ Elections Chair if you wish to participate and request a Presidential Candidate Ballot.
