Adopted by the Membership Meeting of January 23, 2022

Article 5.4 amended by the Membership on January 28, 2024.


The name of this organization shall be the Green Socialist Organizing Project.


What We Believe

1. Ecological Socialism: We support social ownership and democratic administration of the major means of production and distribution in order to meet everyone’s basic needs within ecological limits.
2. Anti-Capitalism: We oppose capitalism because it is a system that is structurally driven to ecologically destructive endless growth, increasing inequality based on exploitation, wars bred by international competition, and oligarchic rule based on concentrated private wealth.
3. Anti-Oppression: We oppose discrimination and oppression based on race, color, nationality, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or disability.
4. Internationalism: We oppose imperialist domination and wars by the US and any nation and act in solidarity with people fighting for their democratic rights and socialism across the world.
5. Independent Politics: We support building a dues-paying mass-membership party for green socialism based on oppressed and exploited working people that is independent of and in opposition to the two-corporate-party system of capitalist rule in the US.

What We Do

1. Party Building: We help build independent, well-organized local and state green socialist parties.
2. Election Campaigns: We help green socialist candidates run credible and, where possible, winning electoral campaigns.
3. Issue Campaigns: We participate in campaigns to advance green socialist policies.
4. Political Education: We produce materials and hold forums for popular political education on ecosocialism, independent politics, policy issues, and organizing skills and strategies.
5. Mass-Membership Green Party: We support transforming the Green Party of the United States from a federation of state parties with indirect representation of individual supporters in the national party into a dues-paying, mass-membership party where individual members have democratic membership rights in the national party and have the responsibility to support the party with dues scaled to their ability to pay.
