Jill Stein Announces 2024 Green Party Presidential Run

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Thursday 11/9/2023

 

Jill Stein announced today that she is seeking the Green Party nomination for President of the United States. Stein is a Harvard-educated doctor, a pioneering environmental health advocate, and a longtime organizer for people, planet, and peace. Says Stein of her mission in 2024: "I'm running for president to offer a better choice for the people outside the failed two-party system. We'll put a pro-worker, anti-war, climate emergency agenda front and center in this election and on the ballot in November."

Stein's run comes at an unprecedented moment in modern electoral politics, with an unsettled electorate and a commanding majority of Americans expressing a desire for a presidential candidate outside the duopoly. According to a recent Gallup poll, "sixty-three percent of U.S. adults currently agree with the statement that the Republican and Democratic parties do 'such a poor job' of representing the American people that 'a third major party is needed.' This represents a seven-percentage-point increase from a year ago and is the highest since Gallup first asked the question in 2003."

“With the war machine swallowing trillions of dollars as working people struggle to survive and the climate crisis accelerates, it’s time to offer voters a viable alternative to the bought-off politicians who have thrown them under the bus,” said Stein. “The ruling parties that got us into this mess aren’t getting us out. Both Democrats and Republicans have betrayed their promises again and again.”

“Political insiders always smear outsiders like us, and try to shame voters who want better choices,” said Stein. “But without freedom of choice in elections, there is no democracy. It’s time to offer the American people a real choice on their ballot independent of the failed establishment.”

Dr. Stein unveiled a campaign website at JillStein2024.com, laying out the campaign’s vision to solve the key crises of our time: crushing inequality, endless war and climate collapse. 

“When we stand together, we can provide living-wage jobs for all Americans,” said Stein. “We can guarantee an Economic Bill of Rights with the right to a job, healthcare, housing, food, education, and more. We can abolish student debt and medical debt. We can create a Green New Deal with millions of jobs to fight the climate crisis and protect Mother Earth. We can ensure Constitutional rights, freedoms, and justice for all. We can end endless war and rampant militarism, and use diplomacy and international law to end violence, occupation, and apartheid. We can build real democracy to empower the people. We do have the power. And we can use it in this election to start building an America and a world that works for all of us.”
