SF Green Party Weekly News and Events


Dear Greens,

* Happy Pride!

* Dr. Cornel West recently announced that he will be seeking the Green
  Party's Presidential nomination in 2024.  We will be discussing his
  candidacy and the relationship between the SF Green Party and the
  West campaign at our members meeting next week - anybody interested
  is welcome to attend, and the agenda is below.  The Green Party of
  California also issued a statement welcoming Dr. West into the race:

* Several former leaders of the SF Green Party, Barbary Blong and
  Betty Traynor, have organized a Zoom talk on 'PFAS: What you need to
  know about "forever chemicals" to protect your family' for this
  Tuesday.  If you want to attend, you must email for registration;
  see more details in the announcement below.

* Greens who are involved with KPFA are asking us for help in allowing
  them to continue to report on the Green Party, so the station does
  not turn even further into an arm of the Biden re-election campaign.
  If you want to vote in KPFA elections (where we often endorse
  candidates), you must have donated at least $25 since July 1 of last
  year.  You can still donate before June 30 of this year at kpfa.org.

Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, have been in the news this
last year and with good reason.  These toxic chemicals in the most
minute amounts, are bioaccumulative, persistent, and nondegradable,
traveling easily through air, water, and soil.  They are everywhere on
the planet and in almost everything, including us.  This zoom
presentation will provide you with the research tools to find out
about PFAS in California and the San Francisco Bay area; the laws that
can protect you (or lack thereof); and ways to protect yourself, your
family, and future generations from these toxins.


What:  Voter outreach at the SF Mime Troupe's "home opening" show
Where:  Dolores Park, meet by entrance at Church and 18th St
When:  Tues, July 4, 1 pm - 4 pm

We'll be doing voter outreach at the Mime Troupe's opening show in
Dolores Park on Tues, July 4.  Their play this year is called
"Breakdown."  https://www.sfmt.org/

The play will start at 2 pm, with music at 1:30.  Volunteers are
needed to help us set up our table and do voter outreach starting at 1

Medicare for All; email if you can help out: cc at sfgreens.org.
