The Illinois Green Party (ILGP) is a diverse group of individuals dedicated to advancing the Greens’ Ten Key Values in our political and social lives. The ILGP is both a political party and a membership organiziation.  The ILGP is affiliated with the Green Party of the United States and is part of the international Green movement.  The Global Greens have affiliated Green parties in 72 countries around the world!

We understand why many people don’t want anything to do with politics: Our political system has become so corrupt and sickening that it turns off most voters.  But that is due to the behavior of the two corporate parties.  Decades of choosing between evils has led us to a place where we are facing numerous, interconnected crises.  We need real solutions to the life and death issues we face!  We need to build a people-powered alternative that is independent of the corporate parties and their corruption.

As the only established political party in Illinois that does not take corporate donations or dark-money PAC/501 contributions, we rely on membership dues to fund our operations.

The Green Party consistently stands up for the interests of working people, the poor and under-served, and the environment. Here are just a few examples:

    • We recognize that the climate crisis and destruction of our ecosystem is a 911 emergency. That’s why the Green Party originated the Green New Deal, a proposed WWII-scale national mobilization to halt climate change and create millions of jobs by transitioning to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030, investing in public transit, sustainable (regenerative) agriculture, conservation and restoration of critical infrastructure, including ecosystems.
    • We call for a publicly funded health care system, to provide comprehensive quality care for all. We demand free higher education and an end to student debt. We also answer the question of how to pay for these things – cut the military budget, tax wealth, not poverty, tax the polluters, and enact monetary reform.
    • We have consistently opposed all U.S. wars without compromise, including the illegal occupations, illegal sanctions, drone strikes and other acts of war in the Middle East
      and Africa.
