The Green Party of Virginia

The Green Party of Virginia is the electoral arm of the Green movement in Virginia. Recognized by the Virginia State Board of elections, the GPVA, made up of affiliated locals and at large members, is the only Green Party in Virginia accredited by the Green Party of the United States (GP-US), which in turn is recognized by the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Hundreds of Greens belonging to the 46 State Parties accredited by the GP-US have been elected to public office, including several in Virginia.

We invite you to join the Green Party of Virginia in building an alternative political party and a movement dedicated to promoting our Ten Key Values, including ecology, democracy, justice, community and peace.

All members are welcome to attend.
