SF Green Party Weekly News and Events


Dear Greens,

    On July 11, Greens officially chose Howie Hawkins and running mate
Angela Walker to be our party's Presidential and Vice-Presidential
nominees!  Hawkins received a majority (59%) of votes in the first
round of voting.  In their acceptance speeches, the nominees
highlighted the connection between climate change and social justice
and the importance of enacting a real Green New Deal.

    SF Green County Council member Mike Murphy recently sat down
(virtually) with Angela Walker for an in-depth discussion of her
candidacy.  Watch the interview here:

    We are starting the process for making local endorsements for the
November election.  Because we can't meet in person due to the
pandemic, and with technological barriers to participating via the
internet, we are being as inclusive as possible in allowing our
members to weigh in on endorsements.  All Greens are welcome to ask
questions of candidates and express affirmations and concerns, but
only people who have volunteered with us since the beginning of 2019
can block consensus, or vote if we don't reach consensus.

    We will be holding candidate interviews for Supervisor on July 22,
and will decide who to endorse over the following two weeks.  If
you're a SF Green Party member and would like to join our Zoom call,
scheduled from July 22 from 7-9 pm, please email cc at sfgreens.org for
call-in information.  The candidates' answers to our questionnaire are
posted on our website:

    We are also finalizing our questionnaires for the other contests.
Please review these and email us any suggested changes or additions.
Candidates will be sent the final version, and have ~3 weeks to

Until the pandemic is under control, we will not be holding in-person
meetings.  Government will need to implement a widespread testing and
contact tracing program in order to safely open things up.

Unfortunately, a number of our active members do not have reliable
internet access (especially with our public libraries closed), so
holding general monthly meetings over Zoom is not an option.  Instead,
we have an email list for discussions between active members, and our
county council (CC) meets by Zoom on the 3rd Wednesdays of every

If you'd like to join our conversation online, or our CC meetings,
please email cc at sfgreens.org with your name and contact info, and also
please remind us if you've been to a meeting before.  If you are
unable to join us but still want to follow what's going on, you can
call Barry Hermanson at 415-255-9494.
