People, Planet & Peace
The Massachusetts Affiliate of the Green Party of the United States

People, Planet & Peace Over Profits

The time is now to end Big Money and PAC influence in politics. Let's focus instead on the critical issues (income inequality, systemic racism, renewable energy, etc.) that have long been neglected by the current two-party system. It is up to the Green--Rainbow Party to provide dedicated and energetic candidates that are willing to take on these real issues and make change happen.

60% of Americans nationwide say that we need a third party and only 25% say that a two-party system suits their needs

What We Stand For: The Four Pillars of the GRP Movement

Green parties recognize four fundamental principles or pillars which support our 10 key values: Ecological Wisdom, Democratic Governance, Social Justice, and Non-Violence

  • Ecological Wisdom - understanding that humans are part of nature, not separate from nature, and are limited by the resources of our communities and the planet--that everything is inter-connnected.
  • Grassroots Democracy - managing our common affairs with the participation of all in the community in accordance with the nature of each, while working to assure the effectiveness of our institutions and to build the capacity of each person to play appropriate roles in the community.
  • Social Justice and Equal Opportunity - working for a society in which all persons, regardless of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality, religion, or physical or mental ability, will have the opportunity to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment.
  • Non-violence - promoting non-violent methods to oppose policies and practices with which we disagree and seeking to eliminate weapons and behaviors which can cause destruction of life on Earth.

If you share these values, please join us!
