Green Party on Families & Children

Party Platform


Expand Head Start and Pre- and neo-natal programs

We call for social policies to focus on protecting families. The young--our citizens of tomorrow--are increasingly at risk. Programs must ensure that children, who are among the most vulnerable members of society, receive basic nutritional, educational, and medical necessities. The Green Party supports and seeks to expand Head Start and Pre- and neo-natal programs. A Children’s Agenda should be put in place to focus attention and concerted action on the future that is our children.

Replace male domination with respect of difference of gender

Ten Key Values: (#7) Feminism

We have inherited a social system based on male domination of politics and economics. We call for the replacement of the cultural ethics of domination and control, with more cooperative ways of interacting which respect differences of opinion and gender. Human values such as equity between the sexes, interpersonal responsibility, and honesty must be developed with moral conscience. 2
