Statement on Gaza War

The Green Party Peace Action Committee (GPAX) urges that Green Party supporters participate in the wave of worldwide mass protests against the US-Israeli slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza and elsewhere.

Our main concern is US military and diplomatic participation in the war and in the criminal siege and bombardment that have already killed thousands in Gaza, wounded tens of thousands, and left a million homeless.

GPAX calls for ending the supply of weapons and financing to Israel; withdrawing US military assets from the region; and ending US war threats. The U.S. must also become constructively engaged in diplomatic efforts to resolve this persistent threat to world peace.

We support the widespread calls by UN officials and member countries, trade unionists, and others for a ceasefire, provision of humanitarian aid, the release of detained people, and long-term solutions based on justice and equality. We urge the Green Party and state parties to work with others for all these goals.

We believe that the recent meeting of President Joe Biden with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, combined with US unconditional support for the Israelis, will inflame the region even further. Without taking the steps we propose, the death and destruction will continue. Our goal is peace, but a peace accompanied by justice for all people of this region.

Jason Call for Congress Town Hall

Join us on Sunday, October 15th at 4pm PT / 7pm ET for a Town Hall conversation with Washington State Green Party Congressional candidate Jason Call

The Green Party of Washington is excited to introduce Jason to a national audience!

Jason is a lifelong progressive activist on issues ranging from healthcare to education to peace action to climate action. He is a former high school math teacher of almost two decades and was elected to the board of his local Education Association for a number of years. He has been active in ballot initiative efforts over the last decade, including I-502 which legalized cannabis in Washington (first in the nation), I-1433 which gave Washington the highest minimum wage in the country, and I-735 which saw Washington become the 18th State to support the movement to Amend the Constitution and overturn Citizens United. Jason has served for 5 years on the board of Whole Washington (wholewashington.org), one of the strongest state-based single-payer organizations in the country.

Jason has run for the WA-02 Congressional seat twice before and came in a close 3rd place both times in the ‘Top Two’ primary. A 2nd place finish would put Jason through to the general election against the corporate-funded incumbent, an outcome that is eminently winnable.

Jason’s website is detailed, with in-depth policy positions, gold star opposition research on the incumbent (a fossil fuel and war machine-backed Democrat seeking his 13th term), media spots, press releases, and op-eds from prior races, and also explains why Jason left the Democrats to join the Green Party.

This race is a real opportunity, with the potential to see the first Green member of Congress!

We look forward to this online event, and we encourage you to come and meet this engaging, knowledgeable, and experienced candidate!

I couldn’t have said it any better than this:

An animated gif of a video clip of UAW President Shawn Fain addressing his union members and the public at the start of their historic Stand Up Strike, in which he says: “Everything working people have ever won, we’ve won together.”

When analysts told CNN’s Jake Tapper that the UAW’s demands were going to “wreck the economy,” UAW president Shawn Fain fired back:

“In the last decade, they made a quarter of a trillion dollars in profits. It’s not that we’re going to wreck the economy. We’re going to wreck their economy, the one that works for the billionaire class. It doesn’t work for the working class.”

The best part is the innovative nature of this strike. UAW just rolled out a whole new method of organizing that’s designed to thwart strikebreakers and block union-busting.

Rather than a mass walk-off from the job, UAW is mobilizing different locals at random, so the bosses never know when or where the strike is coming.

And judging by the public’s response to the UAW strike (which has INCREASED in the last week), we’re headed straight from a Hot Labor Summer to a Burn It All Fall?✊

Workers all across the country are demanding their fair share, because this upside down world where CEOs take home 400x the wages of workers on the line cannot continue. It is GOING to collapse, or we’re going to have to tear it down and build something sustainable.

As a lifelong activist and organizer, and a former elected union rep, I stand in solidarity with the UAW, as well as the ongoing WGA, SAG-AFTRA strike – and the impending nurses’ strike right here in my district at Providence Everett. I will stay by their side until they receive a fair contract, as every worker SHOULD.

But my opponent in this race, a former lobbyist who’s held this seat for 22 years, has repeatedly betrayed striking workers in favor of his wealthy corporate donors.

WA-02 deserves a representative who will always have labor’s back. Can you donate $25, $50, or $100 today to help me win this seat in 2024?

As a public school teacher, I proudly served as an elected union leader at the local and state level for years. In my first year in the Representative Assembly of the Washington Education Association, I wrote, submitted, and passed a resolution rejecting the idea that corporations are people.

While I’m no longer a teacher or a member of the WEA, I’ve never stopped showing up for workers.

While Rick Larsen was dodging questions about a certain coffee shop chain, I joined a group of labor organizers touring Starbucks locations in WA-02 to let workers know – if they decided to unionize – their community had their back. Weeks later, they did.

A photo of Jason Call and several labor organizers holding pro-union signs from Starbucks Worker Solidarity outside of a Starbucks store in Washington’s 2nd congressional district.
Solidarity is a verb, and I’ve got years of receipts.When I win, I’ve pledged to donate 30% of my post-tax congressional salary to strike funds, and every labor organizer I’ve worked with in Washington State knows they can take that promise to the bank.

You can’t stand with labor when you’re on the payroll of the bosses. That’s why I’ve never taken a dime from corporate PACs or lobbyists – and I never will.

I’ve run for this seat before, and we came very close to getting into the general election both times.

With Washington’s Top Two, non-partisan primary, this VERY progressive district is the Green Party’s BEST chance to get a member elected to Congress in 2024.

But only if we build the kind of solidarity we’re seeing behind all the strikes happening across this country right now.

Like Shawn said, “Everything working people have ever won, we’ve won together.”

Solidarity is the only way. And I hope you’ll join me in the fight.

The Green Party Stands Unequivocally Against Anti-Semitism

*** For immediate release ***

Olympia, WA – September 11, 2023

_____________________________________________________

The Green Party of Washington Coordinating Council was shocked by the actions of Former Democrat U.S. House Member from 1993 to 2003, and 2008 Green Party presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney. McKinney on the morning of September 11, promoted an event hosted in part by white supremacist David Duke which characterized Jewish people as a “common enemy.”

In no uncertain terms, the Green Party of Washington condemns this event, its organizers, its promoters, and the vile hatred at its core.

The Green Party of Washington, as a full member of the Green Party of the United States federation, holds respect for diversity and anti-racism as a core belief. Cynthia McKinney has no current relationship or affiliation with the Green Party of Washington or the Green Party of the United States, and has not for years. We condemn her promotion of this event and call on all parties and organizations, including the Democratic Party with whom she served for a decade as a US House Representative to do the same.

GreenLine for September 6, 2023


The 2023 Green Party Annual National Meeting (ANM) was held from August 3-6th! We were delighted to gather virtually to provide an opportunity for all to participate this year, while we continue efforts to meet again in person in 2024 for our Presidential Nominating Convention.

Watch the videos online today!


My name is Jason Call and I’m running for Congress with the Green Party in Washington State in District 2.

“I want to be clear. There are only two people who can possibly win this seat in November of 2024 – and it’s either going to be me, or Rick Larsen.”

No Republican has any shot of winning in the 2nd district. This community cares deeply about climate action, social justice, and labor rights – all things the Republican Party is inherently opposed to. Since 1965, this district has only been represented by a Republican for 6 years.

Our progressive, working-class community deserves a representative who will fight for working families and a livable future.

Green Party to join March to End Fossil Fuels in NYC on Sunday Sept. 17 in conjunction with UN Meeting on Climate plus Webinar on Monday Sept. 11

Green Party to join March to End Fossil Fuels in NYC on Sunday, Sept. 17 in conjunction with UN Meeting on Climate. The Green Party of the United States (GPUS) has endorsed the September 17th March to End Fossil Fuels in New York City. Green Party groups mobilizing for the event also include the EcoAction Committee of both GPUS and the Green Party of New York; and Green Parties of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

The march and rally are being held in conjunction with the United Nations’ September 20 Climate Ambition Summit 2023 to accelerate action by governments, business, finance, local authorities, and civil society. The Summit represents a critical political milestone for demonstrating that there is a collective global will to accelerate the pace and scale of a just transition to a more equitable renewable-energy-based, climate-resilient global economy.

Individuals marching with the Green Party can RSVP HERE.

Organizers expect the largest climate mobilization since the pandemic, calling for presidential action to phase out fossil fuels and address environmental injustice.

The March and rally are calling on President Biden to:

1. Stop all federal approvals for new fossil fuel projects and repeal permits for climate bombs like the Willow Project and Alaska LNG.

2. Phase out fossil fuel DRILLING on our public lands and waters.

3. Declare a climate emergency to halt oil exports and investments in fossil fuel projects abroad, AND lead a just transition to clean, community energy.

The EcoAction Committee will hold a webinar on End Fossil Fuels on Monday, Sept 11 at 8 PM ET. RSVPs are needed.

Connecting the Dots: Maui’s Fires, Climate Change and Public Policy

The Green Party of the US is deeply saddened by the devastating wildfires that have ravaged Maui. We extend our condolences to our friends and the families of those who have lost loved ones, and we offer our support to those who have been displaced from their homes.

Climate change is one of several factors that contributed to these fires. The area in Maui has been in a drought for a number of years, and the fires were fanned by extremely high winds from a nearby hurricane. Climate scientists say that climate change provides additional energy to weather events, increasing their severity.

The burning of fossil fuels is releasing greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, which are trapping heat and causing the planet to warm. The Green Party of the US and Hawai’i are committed to taking action to address climate change. We support policies such as investing in renewable energy, reducing deforestation, and improving energy efficiency.

Green Party Statement on Fukushima

Oppose Fukushima Water Release into the Pacific Ocean!

The Green Party of the United States and the Green Party of Hawai’i stand in solidarity with our fellow Greens in Japan and South Korea when calling for the end of the near-shore release of 1.33 million tons of contaminated water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean. The Green Party of the United States and the Green Party of Hawai’i urge the Government of Japan to respect existing international treaties that ban the release of nuclear waste into the oceans. We also join the Green Party Korea and the Greens Japan in calling for the cancellation of ocean-releasing plans. For this, we call for a public review of methods of on-land storage such as ‘large tank storage’ and ‘mortar solidification treatment’.

The War at Home: Dissent and Repression Webinar

Sponsored by the Peace Action Committee – September 6, 2023 at 8:00 PM ET, 7:00 CT, 6:00 MT, 5:00 PM PT

Click Here to Pre-Register for the Webinar

All wars begin with lies, and the lies serve to conceal the real motives for war. Government motives for mass killing (war) include war machine profits, geopolitics, and plundering of resources. As the general population uncovers the real reasons for the war, government propaganda becomes less effective, which leads to growing dissent and repression of dissent.

Currently over 61% of people polled (according to CNN) no longer want weapons sent to continue the proxy war in Ukraine. The U.S. government has begun to use repressive measures against anti-war groups. In our webinar you will hear from dissenters and from those who have witnessed and experienced repression. It is in the interest of all of us to support dissenters and expose and support those who have been harmed by repressive measures. We welcome your participation in this webinar and your support of the right to dissent.

From Jason —

I’ve lived in Washington’s 2nd district for nearly half my life. As a lifelong antiwar and climate activist, an organizer, a former elected union leader, and a public school teacher, I’ve had a frontline view of the challenges working families are up against.

Over the years local progressives have tried repeatedly to engage our Congressman on the issues that matter to our community. I went to him both as a constituent and a member of the state Democratic Party leadership. But we couldn’t get Rick Larsen to listen. No matter how we approached him, we just kept hitting a brick wall.

It turns out, that wall was made of money.

The people Rick Larsen DOES listen to are the lobbyists and the corporate PACs – the aviation conglomerates, fossil fuel executives and defense contractors who fund his long political career.

That’s why I decided to run for Congress in 2020. And although we were virtually shut down by a once-in-a-century pandemic, our scrappy grassroots campaign came within 2.4% of winning a spot in Washington’s Top Two nonpartisan primary that year.

So I ran again. In 2022 we raised 3.5 times more money and made headlines as Larsen’s “best funded” opponent. And despite the efforts of some within the Democratic Party establishment to shut us down, we earned broad support among local Democratic clubs and again came within 2.4% of winning the primary.

What’s changed since 2022?

While the climate crisis is accelerating, a Democratic president has issued more drilling permits to Big Oil than Trump did, including the catastrophic Willow Project in protected Alaskan wetlands.

While we ended America’s longest war by withdrawing from Afghanistan, the war machine immediately ramped back up pushing for new conflicts with Russia and China – both nuclear powers – while Democratic lawmakers like my congressman cheered them on.

As a global pandemic raged and took more than a million American lives, the case for universal healthcare was stronger than ever – and I made that case in an op-ed in 2022. But Democrats didn’t even raise the conversation despite controlling the Presidency, House, and Senate.

And during an inflation crisis fueled by corporate greed, a Democratically controlled House and Senate alongside a Democratic president allowed the child tax credit to expire – despite the program’s enormous success in lowering child poverty by half. And they did nothing to punish the corporations who are price-gouging working people at the grocery store and the gas pump.

It became clear to me that I no longer had a home in the Democratic Party – and I registered as a member of the Green Party of Washington State. Now, at the urging of my community and my party, I am once again running for Congress to defeat corporate greed and bring real working-class representation to Washington D.C.

As a member of the Green Party, I will have some advantages in this new race that I didn’t have in 2020 or 2022. This time, my party will be working with me to help our campaign succeed. I’ll have the support of the party’s infrastructure, volunteer base, and strategic advisors – none of which was an option for me as a Democratic challenger.

In 2020 and 2022 we came within 2.4% of winning the primary despite everything we were up against. This time, we’ve got the wind at our backs and a clear, viable path to victory.

I want to be clear. There are only two people who can possibly win this seat in November of 2024 – and it’s either going to be me, or Rick Larsen.

No Republican has any shot of winning in the 2nd district. This community cares deeply about climate action, social justice, and labor rights – all things the Republican Party is inherently opposed to. Since 1965, this district has only been represented by a Republican for 6 years.

Our progressive, working-class community deserves a representative who will fight for working families and a livable future.

My platform hasn’t changed. I’m still running to pass Medicare for All. I’m still fighting for urgent climate action and a fundamental transformation of our economy with a REAL Green New Deal. And unlike my opponent, I’ve never taken a dime of corporate PAC money – and I never will.

So if you supported me in 2020 or 2022, or if you are a new supporter, I’m asking you to join our campaign with a contribution of $24 today.

WHEN (not if) we win this seat, we will make history. I will be the first member of the Green Party elected to federal office and a genuine independent, unbought, working-class voice in Congress.

If you can’t contribute today, I hope you will stick around for campaign updates. There will be plenty of opportunities to volunteer even from outside of Washington, and you can always help by following CallForCongress on every social media platform (see links below) to spread the word!

In solidarity,

Statement on Conversation on Reparations

The Green Party of Washington was asked by an endorsed green candidate to provide Zoom access for a conversation on reparations with activists involved in the movement for reparations. The Green Party of Washington was made aware of racist and anti-Semitic comments made in the past by an activist who was invited by another activist to attend this meeting. The Green Party of Washington supports full reparations for all colonized people and encourages conversation on this topic. The opinions expressed by activists in the meeting are not necessarily those of the state party.

We encourage continued discussion on this important topic and ask you to join us on Tuesday, September 19th, 2023 for our monthly reading group discussion on Reparations.

Jason Call for Congress: “Declare a Climate Emergency!”

Today we highlight warnings of accelerating climate change and share an urgent message from Jason Call, our Green Party Congressional Candidate in WA-02, regarding President Biden’s response to the climate crisis. Please donate what you can to support Jason and to help share his message with more supporters. Every donation helps!

From Jason —

We started July with the dubious distinction of the “hottest week on record” for global average temperatures.

We’ve now had 29 straight days of the hottest days on record, and scientists are now reporting that July will be the hottest month in 120,000 years.

This week’s reports from Futurism and The Guardian highlight reactions from climate scientists who are “horrified” to see all of their worst predictions from the 90s coming true:

“We knew by the mid-1990s that lurking in the tails of our climate model projections were monsters: monstrous heatwaves, catastrophic extreme rainfall and floods, subcontinental-scale wildfires, rapid ice sheet collapse raising sea level meters within a century.” 

This is an extinction-level climate emergency. We are so far beyond climate crisis at this point – this is climate breakdown.

And how did our president react this week in response?

Reuters reports: “Biden seeks heat hazard alert, provides $1 billion to plant trees

In his televised statement this week, Biden did not introduce a SINGLE new measure to combat the climate crisis. He didn’t talk about Big Oil or the new pipeline he just greenlit for Joe Manchin. He didn’t talk about preparing our national infrastructure for an influx of climate refugees or mass climate-related migration away from the heavily populated coastal areas threatened by rising sea levels and horrifying superstorms.

He’s planting trees.

This is the policy equivalent of fighting a wildfire with a garden hose.

I’ve been a climate activist all my life, and here’s what I see: While the movement for climate action has never been stronger, the opposition from our government’s corporate-controlled duopoly has never been more entrenched.

We no longer have time to entertain the neoliberal ideology of begging corporate powers to do the right thing. More than ever we need independent, UNBOUGHT, action-driven public servants in office.

If you share my belief that the climate crisis is the single most urgent issue of our time, I need your support today. Can you chip in $25, $50, $100, or more today to help me defeat a corporate Democrat funded by all the same industries responsible for creating this crisis?

It cannot be overstated that the fossil fuel companies KNEW this was going to happen. These government-subsidized, massive, multi-billion dollar corporations knew as far back as the 70s that climate change was real and that THEY were making it worse.

They lied about the science.

They bought off every politician who would cash their checks (my opponent included).

They decimated indigenous communities.

They jailed environmental lawyers.

And today they are still among the richest corporations in the history of the earth while collecting billions in government handouts.

I’m running for Congress with the Green Party because neither the Republicans nor the Democrats will stand up to these climate annihilators.

My opponent is a former lobbyist turned career politician who is the top fossil-fuel-funded Democrat in Washington state. I’m a lifelong climate activist, a former teacher, a former union leader, and a working-class dad.

Next November we can either send a corporate Democrat back to DC for his 24th year in Congress, or we can elect the first-ever Green Party Congressional representative who will fight for real climate action as an independent voice.

I can’t sugarcoat this, {{recipient.first_name_or_friend}}: The climate news is bleak. But I can’t give up. Not for the sake of my kids or any of the rest of us.

We CAN turn it around IF we elect representatives who are serious about the climate crisis. But that window is closing if we don’t act now.

Let’s make history next year.

In solidarity,

– Jason Call
