The Green Party’s Ten Key Values

Social Justice:   We oppose systemic global injustice and poverty.  We seek universal health care, fair payment for work, equitable drug laws and corrections to many other wrongs that exist today.

Grassroots Democracy:   The influence of big business and big government combined is undermining genuine democracy.  To help overcome this, we promote public participation at all levels of government, and a better electoral system.

Non-Violence:   We must develop effective alternatives to society’s current patterns of violence.  Greens work globally to demilitarize foreign policies, redirecting defense budgets to purposes of  health,  safety, education, and the welfare of all.

Ecological Wisdom:  We support a sustainable society that utilizes resources in such a way that future generations will benefit from the practices of our generation.  We seek to protect ecological diversity and balance.

Future Focus:  As did the Iroquois, we strive to create a society where the interests of the Seventh Generation are considered equal to the interests of the present.

Decentralization:  Decision-making in our social, political, and economic institutions should reside as far as possible at the individual and local levels, consistent with ecological sustainability, civil rights, and social justice.

Gender Equality:   We are committed to gender equality in all aspects of our society.  We wish to replace top-down domination with cooperation, compassion, communication and understanding.

Community-Based Economics:   We seek a new economics based on global ecological sustainability, livable wages, sufficient social safety nets, and democratically accountable businesses.

Personal and Global Responsibility:  We seek to join with people and organizations around the world to foster peace, economic justice, and the health of our planet.  We take personal responsibility in upholding our values.

Respect for Diversity:  We honor the biological diversity of the earth and the cultural, racial, sexual and spiritual diversity of its people.
