The Youth Caucus recognizes the importance of Proposal 835 passed in 2016 to amend the GPUS Platform, which definitively laid out the party's opposition to capitalism.
It has been four years since the Youth Caucus SC put out its unanimous endorsement of the proposal, which was authored by one of its members. That statement asked Young Greens across the country to lobby their National Committee delegates. We are proud that this endorsement and call to action helped spark the momentum which ultimately helped 835 pass the National Committee with over 70% support.
You can find the original statement re-posted below.Read more
The Youth Caucus SC is excited to announce the creation of a caucus "Job Board."
Found on our internal organizing software, Basecamp, it lists over 30 specific positions we are looking to be filled. And already 5 have been filled within a few days! Jobs range from support with electoral campaigns to text banking outreach for our education calls, putting together a list of radical resources fo Young Ecosocialists to writing fundraising emails.
To check out the job board, hop on Basecamp.
If you aren't on Basecamp, pay your caucus dues here and we will add you!
The Youth Caucus Steering Committee voted to support efforts underway in multiple states and caucuses to add a sex work decriminalization amendment to the Green Party US platform. The next cycle of platform amendments will be considered in 2018, though submission of amendments will begin within a few months.
We encourage all Young Greens to engage your local and state parties on this topic, and when specific language arises, to sign on as co-sponsors to the amendment.
Currently, we are signing onto the amendment originally coming out of the Illinois Green Party, though will be suggesting some small edits before it is submitted to the GPUS Platform Committee.
