Green Party of Rhode Island
¡Este es tu partido!
The Green Party is the party of peace, not war
Are you tired of our war-mongering U.S representatives and senators?
Lisa is making a strong run for U.S. Senate, in nearby Maine. But what about here in Rhode Island? When will Rhode Island voters finally have candidates who oppose war, and would convert our economy to human needs?
Are you that candidate?
Are you urgent about climate change, insistent on equal rights, passionate about democracy, and an advocate for peace, never war?
Read Peter Nightingale's essay about the Green New Deal
Five and a half years ago, the Burrillville police arrested URI physicist Peter Nightingale. In the pre-dawn hours of August 13, 2015, Peter had chained himself to the Spectra Energy gate, protesting the fracked-gas compressor station being built there. In the years since, Peter has become a well-known climate justice campaigner, protesting, organizing, and telling the world it's time to end the use of fossil fuels. Like Green Parties across the country, we agree with Peter. As a nation, at every level of government, we must take action now to abandon fossil fuels, to save the Earth from catastrophic climate change. It may be too late to avoid the worst, but we haven't given up, and neither have you!
The time to act is NOW.

We are serious about our political principles
The Green Party of Rhode Island is a small, independent political party in the State of Rhode Island. Since our founding in 1992, we've helped establish the national Green Party in 1996, participated in the First Global Green Gathering in 2001, and placed Green candidates for U.S. President on the Rhode Island ballot for every election between 1996 and 2016. (The coronavirus pandemic forced us to suspend petitioning for the 2020 election). Over the years we've also sponsored candidates for Congress, Lieutenant Governor, the General Assembly, city and town councils, Providence Mayor, Woonsocket Mayor, and other local offices. The Green Party's core principles include Ecology, Equality, Democracy, and Peace.

We need your help, in the fight for ecology and justice
Just like other political parties we run candidates for public office, but some of our most important work comes between elections, when we do grass-roots organizing that's unlike any other political party:
