Hi Emily, thanks for writing. I am one of the national co-chairs of the Green Party of the United States, and we are aware of the fact that the language on this particular issue needs updating. We are right now attempting to convene a conference with SWOP to begin rewriting this.
It’s too late to get this change for the platform discussions this year, but we’re not going to wait for the 2018 cycle. We’re going to start getting state party co-sponsors to sign off on updated language ASAP. Our national convention is this week.
Would you like to participate in these discussions? Or do you have any questions? My Twitter is @andreamerida.
