Are you sick and tired of helplessly watching us march down the perilous road to climate catastrophy while our politicians sell us out repeatedly to the oil and gas industry?
Are you fed up with with being one paycheck away from losing your home? Are you tired of seeing more and more people without homes? Are you without a home? The rents are going up. Expensive apartments are being built and the developers are getting tax breaks for it, granted by their politicians who's campaigns they contributed to. Meanwhile our paychecks aren't keeping up. If we are "lucky" enough to have a job, our employers are constantly scheming ways to get us to work more for less.
Are you sickened by the daily reports of working class and poor people of color being killed, brutalized or maimed by the police? It's easier for the people in power to fund militarized police forces to kill and jail people than it is to provide quality education, living wage jobs, and homes for all. Ticketing poor people, who can't afford lawyers, for frivolous petty infractions generates revenue for the city.
The Green Party Pierce County is organizing for a sustainable, humane, equitable world. This won't be easy. It will take time, effort and sacrifice. Our platform is anti-capitalist and calls for an eco-socialist economy. If you would like to meet other folks who know that we can do better together and are willing to put in the effort, come! Or, if you would like to just find out more about us, come!
