Poudre Valley Green Party

Northern Colorado-based Green Party

10 Key Values of the Green Party:

Ecological Wisdom
We recognize that the Earth sustains all life. Green ecology understands the common roots of abuse of nature and people.

Social Justice
Greens want to replace the system of poverty and injustice with a world free of oppression based on class, sex, race, age or sexual orientation.

Grassroots Democracy
The powerless suffer the most from environmental degradation. Greens believe in direct participation by all people in the decisions that affect their lives.

Nonviolence
Greens reject violence as a method for settling disputes: it is shortsighted, morally wrong, and self-defeating.

Community-Based Economics
A healthy measure of self reliance strengthens democracy and prevents distant power brokers from dominating a community.

Decentralization
Power must be restored to local communities within an overall framework of grassroots democracy and socially just values where all participate in decisions.

Feminism
Green politics is inspired by feminist values. The ethics of cooperation must replace the values of domination and control over others.

Respect for Diversity
We honor the diversity of the Earth, and the cultural, sexual, and spiritual diversity of Earth’s people.

Personal and Global Responsibility
Greens demonstrate a commitment to justice and global sustainability through political solidarity and personal lifestyles based on sufficiency and living lightly on the Earth.

Future Focus
Like the Iroquois, Greens seek a society where the interests of the seventh generation are considered equal to the interests of the present.
