Ten Key Values of the Green Party

1. GRASSROOTS DEMOCRACY
Every human being deserves a say in the decisions that affect their lives and not be
subject to the will of another. Therefore, we will work to increase public participation at
every level of government and to ensure that our public representatives are fully
accountable to the people who elect them. We will also work to create new types of
political organizations which expand the process of participatory democracy by directly
including citizens in the decision-making process.

2. SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITY
All persons should have the rights and opportunity to benefit equally from the resources
afforded us by society and the environment. We must consciously confront in ourselves,
our organizations, and society at large, barriers such as racism and class oppression,
sexism and homophobia, ageism and disability, which act to deny fair treatment and
equal justice under the law.

3. ECOLOGICAL WISDOM
Human societies must operate with the understanding that we are part of nature, not
separate from nature. We must maintain an ecological balance and live within the
ecological and resource limits of our communities and our planet. We support a
sustainable society which utilizes resources in such a way that future generations will
benefit and not suffer from the practices of our generation. To this end we must practice
agriculture which replenishes the soil; move to an energy efficient economy; and live in
ways that respect the integrity of natural systems.

4. NON-VIOLENCE
It is essential that we develop effective alternatives to society’s current patterns of
violence. We will work to demilitarize, and eliminate weapons of mass destruction,
without being naive about the intentions of other governments. We recognize the need
for self-defense and the defense of others who are in helpless situations. We promote
non-violent methods to oppose practices and policies with which we disagree, and will
guide our actions toward lasting personal, community and global peace.

5. DECENTRALIZATION
Centralization of wealth and power contributes to social and economic injustice,
environmental destruction, and militarization. Therefore, we support a restructuring of
social, political and economic institutions away from a system which is controlled by and
mostly benefits the powerful few, to a democratic, less bureaucratic system. Decision-
making should, as much as possible, remain at the individual and local level, while
assuring that civil rights are protected for all citizens.

6. COMMUNITY-BASED ECONOMICS AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE
We recognize it is essential to create a vibrant and sustainable economic system, one
that can create jobs and provide a decent standard of living for all people while
maintaining a healthy ecological balance. A successful economic system will offer

meaningful work with dignity, while paying a “living wage” which reflects the real value of
a person’s work.

Local communities must look to economic development that assures protection of the
environment and worker’s rights; broad citizen participation in planning; and
enhancement of our quality of life. We support independently owned and operated
companies which are socially responsible, as well as co-operatives and public
enterprises that distribute resources and control to more people through democratic
participation.

7. FEMINISM AND GENDER EQUITY
We have inherited a social system based on male domination of politics and economics.
We call for the replacement of the cultural ethics of domination and control with more
cooperative ways of interacting that respect differences of opinion and gender. Human
values such as equity between the sexes, interpersonal responsibility, and honesty must
be developed with moral conscience. We should remember that the process that
determines our decisions and actions is just as important as achieving the outcome we
want.

8. RESPECT FOR DIVERSITY
We believe it is important to value cultural, ethnic, racial, sexual, religious and spiritual
diversity, and to promote the development of respectful relationships across these lines.

We believe that the many diverse elements of society should be reflected in our
organizations and decision-making bodies, and we support the leadership of people
who have been traditionally closed out of leadership roles. We acknowledge and
encourage respect for other life forms than our own and the preservation of biodiversity.

9. PERSONAL AND GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY
We encourage individuals to act to improve their personal well-being and, at the same
time, to enhance ecological balance and social harmony. We seek to join with people
and organizations around the world to foster peace, economic justice, and the health of
the planet.

10. FUTURE FOCUS AND SUSTAINABILITY
Our actions and policies should be motivated by long-term goals. We seek to protect
valuable natural resources, safely disposing of or “unmaking” all waste we create, while
developing a sustainable economics that does not depend on continual expansion for
survival. We must counterbalance the drive for short-term profits by assuring that
economic development, new technologies, and fiscal policies are responsible to future
generations who will inherit the results of our actions.

Ten Key Values from other state and local Greens.
There is no authoritative version of the Ten Key Values of the Greens. The Ten Key
Values are guiding principles that are adapted and defined to fit each state and local
chapter.
