Why Vote Green?








We are Connecticut residents that have come together to form an independent, progressive political party. We are grassroots activists, environmentalists, and advocates for social justice, non-violent resisters, and regular citizens who have had enough of corporate-dominated politics.
Government must be part of the solution, but when it's controlled by the 1%, it's part of the problem. The longer we wait for change, the harder it gets. Don't stay home on Election Day. Vote Green.



The Shoreline Green Party is an official chapter of the Green Party of Connecticut.
