When Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein stopped off in the North Bay Tuesday, there were no motorcades or fancy fundraisers. But there were lots of progressive policy proposals bundled under the banner of a Green New Deal.
Part of the Green Party's political strategy lies in building support among young people, and Stein makes policies that address the needs of the current college generation a central part of her campaign.
To enable the broadly progressive social policies embodied in the Green New Deal, Stein also calls for a dramatically different approach to international relations.
To date, the Green Party of the United States has been largely successful in their efforts to gain access to the presidental election ballots in most states across the country. Write-in efforts for the ticket of Jill Stein and Cheri Honkana are underway in most of the other states. The campaign has also launched a modest television advertising effort, including the one featured here.
