Jill Stein and David Cobb in Santa Barbara

The election of Donald Trump has only exacerbated the multiple crises the world faces now: the climate catastrophe, obscene global inequality, world-wide erosion of faith in political parties, and a pervasive culture of violence from the most intimate relationships to the war-making system. Come to this event to hear fresh perspectives on building a people’s movement dedicated to the eradication of these ills and the building of a Green New Deal!
Jill Stein is a physician and was the presidential candidate of the Green Party in 2012 and 2016. She holds the current record for most votes ever received by a woman candidate for President of the United States in the general election. She is a mother, an organizer, physician, and pioneering environmental-health advocate. She has helped lead initiatives to fight environmental racism and injustice, to promote healthy communities, to strengthen local green economies and to revitalize democracy. She has helped win victories in campaign finance reform, racially-just redistricting, green jobs, and the cleanup of incinerators, coal plants, and toxic threats. She was a principal organizer for the Global Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit.
