The Green Party of Philadelphia is both a political party and a grassroots political activist organization. All are welcome to join. We are an association of citizens who strive to make our city a more just and sustainable community. We work through education, direct action, and inclusive electoral politics.
The Green Party is an officially recognized political party in Pennsylvania and is one of the only parties that is actually growing. As with Greens throughout the United States and the world, we are guided by the Four Pillars and Ten Key Values.
Our structure is detailed in our bylaws and is grounded on democratic principles. We strive to make decisions by consensus or by carefully delegated authority. The highest body in the organization is the General Membership. Most of the day-to-day work is performed by the Working Groups, volunteers, and the City Committee. We have recently compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about GPOP and the Green Party in general.
All registered Green voters in Philadelphia are automatically members of the Green Party of Philadelphia, but we encourage you to fill out the membership form. At the very least, join one of our e-mail lists. If you have questions concerning membership, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215-843-4256 and ask for Chris Robinson, the GPOP Membership Secretary.
You do not have to be a member of the Green Party in order to participate in a working group! Our working groups carry out the bulk of our activist and political work.
The City Committee is responsible for general administration of the organization and implementation of the decisions of the membership as a whole, particularly between monthly General Membership meetings.
