Green Party on Civil Rights

Party Platform


Support affirmative action to remedy discrimination

One of our key values is Respect for Diversity. We are committed to establishing relationships that honor diversity; that support the self-definition and self-determination of all people; and that consciously confront the barriers of racism, sexism, homophobia, class oppression, ageism, and transphobia, and the many ways our culture separates us from working together. We support affirmative action to remedy discrimination.

Support equal rights of all persons on civil marriage

We support equal rights of all persons, regardless of sexual orientation, to housing, jobs, civil marriage, medical benefits, child custody, and in all areas of activity enjoyed by all citizens.

Confront barriers of racism, sexism, heterosexism, & ageism

Ten Key Values: (#3) Social Justice and Equal Opportunity

All persons should have the rights and opportunity to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment. We must consciously confront in ourselves, our organizations, and society at large, barriers such as racism and class oppression, sexism & heterosexism, ageism and disability, which act to deny fair treatment and equal justice under the law.

Respect ethnic, racial, sexual, and spiritual diversity

Ten Key Values: (#8) Respect for Diversity

We believe it is important to value cultural, ethnic, racial, sexual, religious and spiritual diversity, and to promote the development of respectful relationships across these lines. We believe the many diverse elements of society should be reflected in our organizations and decision-making bodies, and we support the leadership of people who have been traditionally closed out of leadership roles.

Require affirmative action

Corporations receiving public subsidies must provide livable wage jobs, observe basic workers rights, and agree to affirmative action policies.of such distribution not just on our present needs, but on the seventh generation to come. In addition, we support efforts to overcome the aftereffects of over 200 years of discrimination and, hence, support affirmative action.
