Green Mission Statement

The Green movement has many origins. Its commitment to peace and non-violence, social justice and feminist values can be traced to the great social and political upheavals that, beginning with the civil rights movement, swept the entire western world during the 1960's. The practice of grassroots democracy owes much to the anti-nuclear power movement's affinity group structure and use of consensus. The articulation of the interconnectedness of social and ecological politics emerged from the environmental movement, partly in response to dissatisfaction with the narrow reformation of many mainstream environmental organizations.

Local Green groups throughout the country are linked through a national clearinghouse, Green journals, and state, regional and national conferences. As our fundamental orientation, Greens in the U.S. have adopted Ten Key Values: Ecological Wisdom, Grassroots Democracy, Nonviolence, Social Justice, Decentralization, Community-based Economics, Feminism, Respect for Diversity, Personal and Global Responsibility, and Future Focus.

As the Green movement has grown, so has its need for more developed position statements on a wide range of important issues. More than 200 papers from across the country were submitted and condensed into topical areas over the course of two national Green gatherings in 1989 and 1990, culminating in adoption of the 20 policy statements contained in this Program. Subsequent Green congresses have amended the original document in a variety of ways.

The Green Program spells out in considerable detail the values, policies, and forms of governance that compose a Green alternative to the current order. It is a living document that remains open to further democratic development and change. We hope it will stimulate dialogue and lead to greater coordination among the many groups and individuals aware of the need for a Green alternative.
