Missouri Green Party to make history with 1st ever Missouri Green Party State Convention

The Missouri Green Party is holding its historic 1st annual state convention August 12-13th 2017 in Columbia Missouri. We are excited to build on the opportunities opened to us as an officially recognized political party with state-wide ballot access!

The Green Party is the fastest growing political party in Missouri! Since the end of the 2016 General Election the MOGP has seen a burst of activity as well as a continued uptick in new GP membership enrollments statewide.

The convention is open to all dues-paying members. For folks who are not yet members, you may do so through our website or through a local chapter. https://missourigreenparty.org/membership/

The convention will be an opportunity to get to know over 140 Green Party members from around the state, vote on new bylaws and a state platform, ratify our legal structure, vote on officers, prepare for the 2018 mid-term elections, and plan for organizing a stronger grassroots party. Speakers include Bruce Dixon the Georgia Green Party Co-Chair & Black Agenda Report co-founder and Andrea Merida-Cuellar the National Green Party US State Committee Co-Chair.

The event will run from 11:00 AM - 6 PM on Saturday August 12th and 9AM-3PM on Sunday August 13th. Look for more convention announcements on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MissouriGreenParty/

Come help us build the Green Party! We are making history and growing fresh politics in Missouri!

Cunningham Tornado Memorial Cleanup

September 23rd 2017 4pm-730pm

The Green Alliance of Southwest Missouri will be partnering with the City of Joplin throughout the Summer starting on June 17th to help share the responsibilities of keeping our Tornado Memorials in Cunningham Park clean and enjoyable for our communities. These memorials serve as a reminder of everyone that was lost and everyone that came to lend a helping hand after the devastating EF-5 Tornado that struck the heart of our beloved city.

Volunteer duties will include pulling weeds, picking up litter/cigarette butts, sorting recyclables.

This is an easy way to get out, get active, and help in your community! This is a family event!

Green candidates that are passionate, energetic, ethical & have a real vision of a better Missouri that works for all of us!
