Green Party Vice Presidential candidate Cheri Honkala is director of the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign. She has fought for housing for everyone ever since her experience as a homeless mother in Minnesota in the 1980s. Recently she has become a nationally recognized leader in the fight to resist foreclosures.

The Green Party ticket of Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala is advancing a positive vision called the Green New Deal. The Green New Deal projects a 1930s-style jobs program to restore our schools and universities, transit systems, health care delivery, and environment (see http://www.jillstein.org).

The burning question today is not lesser evils, but the basic direction for our country. Instead of bipartisan bank bailouts, let's invest our national resources in a better world for our children. Instead of holding hunger games, let's build a moral society based on the spiritual values of love and community.

Voting Green in California is part of a long term strategy to build a viable third party for the future. A strong Green Party vote today lays the foundation for the battle in the days ahead.
