Why Vote Green (!)The Green Party embraces common sense values. Consider stepping outside of the box. Vote Green to promote a vision that can sustain our towns, our country and the world. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us at FB @shorelinegreenparty or www.shorelinegreenparty.org As of October, 2017, Shoreline Green Party is only about 6 months old, but we have a vibrant growing group, 4 candidates running in two towns, and many activities and events, including a regional version of the Green Platform specific for the Shoreline of CT! We welcome you to join us in the future! The international Green Party movement is guided by the “Four Pillars”: Ecological Wisdom, Social Justice, Grassroots Democracy, and Nonviolence. Greens in the United States add six more — Decentralization, Community-Based Economics, Feminism, Respect for Diversity, Personal and Global Responsibility, and Future Focus/Sustainability — to form the “Ten Key Values”. There is no authoritative version of the Ten Key Values. They are guiding principles that are adapted and defined to fit each state and local chapter. THE 10 KEY VALUES OF THE US GREEN PARTY 1. GRASSROOTS DEMOCRACY 2. SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITY 3. ECOLOGICAL WISDOM 4. NON-VIOLENCE 5. DECENTRALIZATION 6. COMMUNITY-BASED ECONOMICS AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE 7.
