Platform

The San Joaquin County Green Party is in support of the California Green Party platform http://www.cagreens.org/platform that is based on the Green Party’s Ten Key Values http://www.cagreens.org/ten-key-values

In addition to the state party platform, the Green Party of County San Joaquin is acutely aware of local and regional issues that are unique to our county. In an effort to clarify our party’s values on these specific issues, we established some initial priorities during our 2/18/17 Assembly. This county party platform is a living document to be amended as needed during future Assemblies.  


  • The San Joaquin County Green Party asserts that Health Care is a right, not a privilege. We support State & national efforts to implement single-payer health care.
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party asserts that safe and affordable housing is foundational to a just society. We will continue to support efforts to provide clean, safe, affordable housing to all who seek it.
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party unequivocally denounces all forms of police brutality and unlawful use of force. We support adequate training of officers in safe, ethical, and just policing. We insist that officers be held accountable for any unlawful use of force.
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party supports a minimum wage in California and across the United States that is a living wage.
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party supports efforts to maintain clean air and water, and healthy soil in our county and beyond. The cost of preserving clean air and water should be borne by the polluters.  A key struggle in our county continues to be the management and distribution of water.
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party supports efforts to restore representative democracy in our nation at national state & local levels of government.  Corporations and other large political donors have far too much influence over policy and in elections..  In our system of government full disclosure is essential and contributions cannot be considered as a form of “speech.”  
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party supports efforts to maintain high quality, free, public education for students at elementary, secondary, and higher education levels.
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party supports just and humane immigration policies that honor and facilitate the efforts of well-meaning persons that seek to come to our county.  We support a clear and rapid pathway for immigrants of all cultural backgrounds, of all levels of wealth or poverty, of all races, that have education and that lack it, and for those of all religious faiths and of no religious faith.
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party seeks to end nuclear proliferation and supports the restoration and cleanup of contamination at nuclear test sites and storage facilities.  
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party supports the rapid transition to 100% reliance on environmentally responsible sources of energy and the immediate phasing out of fossil fuels in the US and abroad.
  • The San Joaquin County Green Party supports homelessness prevention and programs that assist homeless citizens with daily needs.  "Right to Rest" policies should be implemented to protect homeless from being arrest for simply being without a home.

Other topics that were discussed during our Assembly include: Prison reform, criminal justice reform, Electoral Reform (encourage alternative parties, ranked choice). These issues are covered thoroughly in the Green Party of California Platform.

Approved October 2017 at the Fall General Assembly by county Green Party members.
