On Monday October 28 Katrina Brabham and Robert Piemme spoke to the students of the "Management of Nonprofit Environmental Organizations" class, headed by Professor Ward Allebach.
About fifteen students were present.
Robert talked about the history of Green politics as a global movement, detailing its origins in the Pacific and Europe, the formation of Green parties around the world and their electoral success and the history of the Green Party of the United States.
Katrina spoke about the local party, its mission and activities, past elections and ballot access.
They both touch on the Green Party of Pennsylvania and issues such as healthcare, fracking and ballot access reform.
Their presentation lasted about twenty five minutes and was follows by twenty minutes of questions from students about fund-raising, membership, administration, cooperation with other third parties, the relation of the Green Party and Socialism, to name just a few.
For the past few years Professor Ward has invited the Green Party to speak to his class, along with other local environmental organizations.
The Green Party of Pennsylvania quarterly meeting will be held on November 16, from 11am to 3:30 pm, at the Friends Meeting House in Harrisburg.
