At the Green Party of the United States Presidential Nominating Convention
in Baltimore July 14th, 2012, Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala became our
Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees receiving the votes of
two-thirds of the delegates present. A primary focus of the Stein/Honkala
campaign has been to aid and motivate Greens across the country to
reinvigorate their state parties and achieve or retain ballot status with
very positive results.

The center piece of the Stein/Honkala campaign is the Green New Deal. "The
Green New Deal is an emergency four part program of specific solutions for
moving America quickly out of crisis into the secure green future. " It
complements and expands on the policies and programs of the GPUS Platform.
However, many of the policies contained in the Green New Deal are not
specifically listed in our Platform.

The Stein/Honkala campaign has received the endorsement of two-thirds of the
Greens in the United States and it is fitting that the GPUS should
officially embrace, endorse and promote their program, the Green New Deal,
as well.


The Green Party of the United States endorses the policies and programs of
the Green New Deal.

The Green Party of the United States furthermore will promote these policies
and programs by:

1.) creating a web page on our website ( containing the Green New
Deal summary as currently listed on the Stein/Honkala Campaign website at


2.) creating a PDF summary of the Green New Deal to be available for down
load through our website (

3.) promote the Green New Deal through the Green Pages, press releases and
statements to the media

4.) work with the Stein/Honkala Campaign to provide other materials and
merchandise relating to the Green New Deal directly through our office in
Washington, DC.

5.) Provide the necessary funding to accomplish the goals above.


The GPUS Treasurer is authorized to approve expenditures of up to $1000 from
the General Operating Account to implement the goals of this proposal.
