Dear Greens,

     Have you seen our new website yet?
Now live at http://sfgreenparty.org/


Green Party mayoral candidate Terry Joan Baum got some media
attention--she was profiled in the Bay Area Reporter this week!

She has also broken the "green ceiling" by being invited to a major
Mayoral debate, scheduled on August 30 and sponsored by the Potrero
Boosters Neighborhood Association.

See our article here for more info:


A number of volunteer events for the Baum campaign are also
listed on our website; see here for more info:



At our monthly meeting next Wednesday, the Green Party is holding
a forum to discuss innovative solutions to housing and homelessness
in the City.  The forum is called "Thinking Outside the Cardboard Box"
and will be held at the Noe Valley Library from 7-8:45 pm.

We've invited representatives from squatter's rights organizations as
well as the Tenants' Union to give us their thoughts--please bring
your ideas as well!


Remember, the location of our monthly meetings often changes from
month to month, so check our website for details.  Events and
their locations are listed here:

raise money for voter outreach (primarily, booth fees and costs of our

* Raise funds for the SFGP by calling registered Green Party members
in SF. This will include "cold calling" as well as contacting our
previous donors. Lists will be provided.

people who wish to volunteer, have moved or changed phone numbers.

including volunteer opportunities, events, and meetings.
Coordinate members wishing to volunteer via follow-up phone calls
and/or email.

* Prior phone canvassing experience (e.g., either volunteer or paid
progressive work for a progressive campaign).

* Knowledge of SFGP activities. The contractor must remain aware of
upcoming tabling opportunities and meetings, as well as party
strategy, in order to answer questions from members.

* Professional and discreet with sensitive personal and financial
information. Enthusiasm and strong personal communication skills
are also necessary.

* good access to a phone and computer.

The contractor will use their own telephone to contact SFGP members
from the voter file, and will solicit donations by credit card or
check. The contractor will also coordinate members wishing to
volunteer for SFGP activities. Results of phonebanking will be
entered into an online database. The initial contract will be for 100
hrs of work (approximately 10 weeks), and may be extended depending on
how successful the fundraising is. Pay will be commission-based: 50%
of donations received, with a minimum rate of $10/hr and a maximum

and state income and employment taxes, including self-employment
