We are the official Youth Caucus of the Green Party US.
As a party that advocates for social justice issues, the Green Party offers youth an avenue to be represented and participate in electoral politics, in movement spaces, and in grassroots organizing work.
We are part of a Global Green movement that is establishing a comprehensive replacement of the typical “business as usual” party politics. Young EcoSocialists serve the needs of youth voters and are consistently forming new chapters, on university/college campuses and city-wide local organizations. Young EcoSocialists are committed to positive politics and effective political activism.
The marginalization of youth in the U.S. political process, including the electoral process, and within social movements, has long existed in the United States. Furthermore, youth are always the spark of systemic change in society, and thus always repressed by older more conservative (more socialized) people and groups, always dis-empowered by the legal system and in the wider culture due to adultism.
As part of our core identity, Young EcoSocialists underline our position and interpretation of the Green Party's Platform as anti-capitalist, intersectional/anti-oppression, anti-colonialist, and politically independent from the corporate parties and from other forms of corporate influence.
