North Carolina Central University is Going Green - Annual National Meeting in Durham This Weekend

Greens from across the country will converge on Durham, North Carolina starting this Thursday for the 2009 Green Party Annual National Meeting.  Greens will take an opportunity to meet, discuss Green party values and strategy, and lay the groundwork for campaigns in 2010, 2012, and beyond.  Come and meet Lynne Williams, our 2010 Gubenatorial Candidate from Maine and other candidates!

There are a number of special events open to the public including:. 

Friday, 3:30-4:30 pm will be a Public Forum on single-payer healthcare.

Friday, 6:30-8:30 pm will be a special screening of the documentary "Coal Country," on mountain top coal removal and the coal industry, introduced by Jesse Johnson, 2008 Green Party candidate for nomination for president and for governor of West Virginia. Jesse is also featured in the film.

Saturday, 3:30 pm will be a presentation from 2008 Green Party Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney.

Saturday, 8:30 - 10:30 pm: Fundraiser at Marvell Event Center. 119 W Main Street, Durham, NC 

Workshops will be held on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  This year, Greens can take part in discussions in four tracks: Issues, Campaign School, Skill-Building, and Strategizing.  Presenters will discuss fundraising, getting out the vote, building state and local parties, ballot access, candidate recruitment, and "Greening" the web. National Committee delegates and state-approved observers will be participating in a meeting Friday-Sunday.

It's not too late to attend!  Registration will take place on site starting Thursday at noon.  If you can make it to Durham, we want you there!  Check out the North Carolina Green Party's ANM page to buy your fundraiser tickets, get details, directions, lodging information, and a full schedule.

Keep the Heat on Bill Maher

On June 19th, Bill Maher (former host of Politically Incorrect and current host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher) asked his viewers "Shouldn't there be one party that unambiguously supports cutting the military budget, a party that is straight up in favor of gun control, gay marriage, higher taxes on the rich, universal health care - legalizing pot - and steep, direct taxing of polluters?"  Seeing ourselves in his description of a truly progressive party, the Green Party of the United States wrote an open letter to Bill Maher asking him to invite Green Party representatives and candidates on his show.

We asked you to help convince Bill Maher to invite us, and you responded!  Now we need you to keep the heat on BIll Maher.  Call his show's studio at (323) 575-2345 and ask the switchboard operator for the production office of Real Time with Bill Maher.  Then ask him to invite America's true progressive party - the Green Party - on his show. You can also e-mail Real Time and ask to see the Green Party on the air - over 1,000 of you already have!
