AZGP State Committee Meeting - August


The AZGP Steering Committee will meet on the Third Thursday of each month in the year 2022, unless that month already has a scheduled General Membership meeting.


The AZGP Steering Committee meetings are open to the public to attend through zoom. Please RSVP to receive a link to the meeting.



The Green Party is committed to values-based politics, as expressed in our Ten Key Values. These values guide us in countering and changing a system that extols exploitation, unsustainable consumption, and destructive competition.

In this century, it is imperative that we find sound economic ways to make systemic changes. It is our responsibility to rebuild the political culture of the United States in order to stop wars of aggression, short-sighted ecological destruction, erosion of our rights, and the system that perpetuates social and economic injustice. In other words, we must fundamentally change our society's broken political system.

Now is the time to build a bridge from the world we have to the better world we know is possible.

Now is the time to grow a sustainable political force to work for grassroots democracy, nonviolence, social justice, and ecological wisdom.

AZGP Secretary
