Come talk with Jill Stein about the movement for democracy and justice that’s sweeping the planet. Discuss the urgent need for jobs, the abolition of college debt, and a stable climate future as key foundations of generational justice.
Dr. Jill Stein was the Green Party’s 2012 candidate for President of the United States. She is an organizer, physician, and pioneering environmental-health advocate. She says she "has gone from practicing clinical medicine to practicing POLITICAL medicine because politics is really the mother of all illnesses. If we want to fix the things that are literally killing us, then we've got to fix this very sick political system." She has helped lead initiatives promoting healthy communities, local green economies and stronger democracy – including campaign finance reform, green jobs, racially-just redistricting, and the cleanup of incinerators, coal plants, and toxic-pesticides.
If you've had enough of corporate capitalism that puts profits ahead of people, planet, and peace – come out on Tuesday, April 7th. Jill believes we desperately need a new way forward that’s humane, sustainable, and just.
It’s in our hands...
