Members and Supporters of GPMN,
As you may have noticed, the Green Party of Minnesota has been relatively inactive for the past few years. This is for a myriad of reasons, but on January 22nd, 2023, more than twenty Greens from across the state came together virtually and in person to begin the process of reactivating the Green Party of Minnesota. An interim Coordinating Committee has been elected to serve one-and-a-half-year terms to fulfill the necessary tasks determined at the January 22nd meeting; this includes reviewing and amending the bylaws, improving financial management, and pursuing further accountability, accessibility, and anti-racism within GPMN.
Additionally, we want to reconnect with you, the members and supporters of the Green Party of Minnesota, to make sure we are serving you and fulfilling your vision of Minnesota to the best of our ability. There will be a few opportunities to provide input between now and the 2023 Summer Membership Meeting (date and location to be determined). First, there is a survey that we are encouraging everyone to fill out. There will also be four envisioning meetings, two virtual and two in person, where Minnesota Greens will be welcome to share their vision for GPMN and the State of Minnesota; the information for those meetings is below:
Wednesday, May 17, 6-7:30 PM online via Zoom for members (Meeting Link)
Saturday, May 20, 10-11:30 AM in the Doty Board Room at the Minneapolis Central Library (300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55401) for members
Wednesday, June 7, 6-7:30 online via Zoom for members and allied organizations (Meeting Link)
Saturday, June 10, 10-11:30 AM in the Highland Park Library Community Room (978 Ford Pkwy, St Paul, MN 55116) for members and allied organizations
Also, the Annual Membership Meeting will be taking place on July 15. The time, location, and other details will be coming out soon!
The fact is that the Green Party of Minnesota still has a role in today’s politics. With the ongoing climate crisis, increasing wealth inequality, the never-ending need to combat racism and colonialism in all aspects of society, and the continuing infringement of the rights of women and LGBTQIA2S+ people, the Green Party can and must stand as champions of change and sustainability, equity, and justice. We can build a progressive, grassroots movement to create a world where people, planet, and peace are put before profit, and we hope you will join us in this renewed effort to fight for such a world.
In sincere solidarity,The Coordinating Committee of the Green Party of Minnesota
