ABOUT HOWIE HAWKINS
7-11-2020. Howie Hawkins is the Green Party candidate for President of the United States in 2020. Howie was the first candidate to run on a fully developed Green New Deal in 2010. The Ecosocialist GND connects an Economic Bill of Rights to jobs, income, housing, health care, and education in an expansive plan to reconstruct the economy for climate justice and economic safety; the plan promotes 100% clean energy by 2030.
His book, ‘The Case for an Independent Left Party‘ serves as a guide for ecosocialists who want to actually change the capitalist system, not merely lobby the capitalists’ political representatives in the Democratic Party.
On his campaign website, an extensive Platform Summary describes his two primary political goals, “To build the Green Party as an activist and viable opposition to the two-capitalist-party system of corporate rule,” as well as “to put our ecosocialist program for real political and economic democracy, civil liberties, social justice, ecological sustainability, and peace on to the public agenda.”

Ballot Access for Washington State?
Please help the Green Party get our candidate on the November ballot in 2020. Gathering physical signatures in a very short window of time to qualify during a pandemic is an onerous process in Washington State. Many states have allowed electronic signatures, and many states qualify to make ballot at lower percentages. We want your help, but we also want you to stay safe and healthy. If we do not make the ballot, the option to ‘write in’ Howie Hawkins is still there, but many Greens and independents will abstain.
