Green Party and Peace & Freedom Party Endorsements
by Voter
Saturday Oct 31st, 2020 9:07 AM
Here is info on endorsements by the Green Party and the Peace & Freedom Party for President, for the State Propositions, and for local races and measures:
PRESIDENT:
The Green Party and the Peace and Freedom Party are both running Presidential candidates who are far more progressive than the Democratic Party's candidate. But as they have for over a decade now, the Democrats will nevertheless win California's Presidential vote by a huge margin, so there really shouldn't be any hesitation for Bay Area progressive and radical voters to vote for either the Green or the Peace and Freedom candidates. (You can check various polling websites to confirm this -- here is one which currently shows Biden beating Trump by 29 percentage points (64% to 35%) in California: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2020-election-forecast/california/ ).

So -- please vote for either Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins (see: https://howiehawkins.us/ ) or Peace and Freedom Party candidate Gloria La Riva (see: https://www.lariva2020.org/ )!


STATE PROPOSITIONS:
The Green Party and the Peace and Freedom Party have the same positions on ten out of the twelve state propositions. The difference is for the final two propositions, numbers 24 and 25, where the Green Party opposes them and the Peace and Freedom Party supports them.

You can read about the Green Party's positions here: http://cagreens.org/elections/voter-guide-nov-2020 and here: https://acgreens.files.wordpress.com/2020/09/gpac-vg-11-20-web-fnl.pdf -- and you can read about the Peace and Freedom Party's positions here: http://www.peaceandfreedom.org/home/128-front-page-content/1624-ballot-propositions-california-2020 These are both parties' recommendations:
