Save Our Public Schools on Tuesday! No Meeting Monday.

Please note that there will NOT be an Onondaga County Green Party monthly meeting this Monday (the 6th).

Instead, we invite you to join us on tuesday (the 7th) for: 

SOS! Save Our Public Schools with Green Party Lt. Governor Candidate Brian Jones.  
Public education in New York is under attack during Cuomo's tenure as governor. New York schools are the most segregated schools in the country and they're woefully underfunded. Additionally, the Common Core based test-and-punish regime currently being pushed in schools can be used to hold students back, deny them diplomas, fire teachers, and close schools. Instead of the privatization schemes pushed by Cuomo and Republican candidate Rob Astorino, Howie Hawkins and Brian Jones are calling for fully funded, quality public education, qualitative assessments instead of the punitive high stakes testing model, and an end to the attack on teacher's unions.

Tuesday October 7, 7pm - 9pm
University United Methodist Church
1085 East Genesee St, Syracuse, NY

As a political party we work to establish political action based on cooperation, rather than exploitation, on conservation rather than consumption, and on sustainability rather than short-term gain. We believe in an alternative, independent politics.
