I condemn Bush & Trump for ignorant, offensive comments. You will never become President by attacking Asian & other immigrant communities.

Join us for our Mayoral Campaign Forum

This month, we're moving our meeting from the 4th Wednesday to the 5th (April 29, from 7-9 pm), in order to schedule a discussion of the upcoming Mayoral campaign.  What would the Green Party like to accomplish in this election, and what lessons can we learn from previous Green campaigns for Mayor?  We'll have a panel discussion and Q&A with:

  • Francisco Herrera, Green Party member, and current candidate for Mayor
  • Terry Joan Baum, Green candidate for Mayor in 2011 (and a previous Green congressional candidate)
  • Barry Hermanson, Green candidate for a number of previous campaigns, including Congress

The meeting will be held at our new office space in the Redstone Building: 2940 16th Street.

 

Room change update:  we'll meet in the Mojo Theatre space on the 2nd floor (room 217) rather than the 3rd floor.

New Office!

SF Greens are moving to a new office space in the Redstone Building!

 

We now have a shared office, and will hold monthly meetings and events there.  The Redstone Building is at 2940 16th Street, near the 16th and Mission BART station.  We will hold most monthly meetings in room #302.  The building is accessible, with an elevator.  Our mailing address, however, will not change.

 

We are having an office warming after our first meeting in the new space.  On Wednesday, March 26, from 6:45-9 pm, we will make additional endorsements on state and local propostions for the June election, as well as candidates.  Update:  we will start a little early, at 6:45, in order to interview David Campos for the Assembly race.  If you want to ask him any questions, be sure to show up at 6:45 or a little before!

 

After the endorsements are finished, we will celebrate the opening of our new office! If you can, bring a small dish or beverage to share.  New members and guests are most welcome!

Questionnaire posted for 9/25 candidate forum

The SF Green Party will host a candidate forum this Wednesday, 9/25--come ask questions to candidates in the races for D4 (Sunset) Supervisor, City Attorney, Assessor, and Treasurer.  The forum will take place from 7-9 pm in the Community Room at the Taraval/Parkside Police Station, 2345 24th Ave, in the Sunset.  The event is open to the public and all are invited!

 

Please read candidates' answers to our Supervisorial questionnaire in advance, so we don't ask them questions they've already answered on the record.  We received the following response from D4 Supervisorial candidates (all 3 were invited but only one responded):

Note that we do not currently have questionnaires for the other citywide contests; all candidates from those contests were invited.
