The Franklin County Green Party is committed to environmentalism, social and economic justice, grassroots democracy and non-violence through community-based organizing without the support of corporate donors.

Whether the issue is universal health care, corporate globalization, alternative energy, election reform or decent, living wages for workers, Greens have the courage and independence necessary to take on the powerful corporate interests opposed to reform.
