UT Greens

There are Green Party organizations in Travis County, the state of Texas, the United States nationally, and in many other nations globally.

Why a UT Greens organization on the campus of the University of Texas?

Because the future that's being crafted by those in power is the future you're going to be living in! The politicians of today aren't going to have to live with the consequences of their short-sighted actions, but you are.

Website Recovered and being updated

Hi Everyone,

We finally got our website back and recovered at least one login - long story.

Anyhow, as most of you know this site hasn't been updated in four years, but we are working on it now.

If you are familiar with Drupal, we could use you. We'd rather move to an easier platform, however, so if you can do that work, let us know!!!

The meetings page is now up to date.

The State website has current information on November's election and candidates at http://www.txgreens.org/Election2016.

To keep up with what is going on:

Travis County Green Party endorses Kathie Tovo for City Council

The Travis County Green Party is proud to endorse Kathie Tovo for Austin City Council.

Our wish list also includes greater transparency and greater oversight of city and federal funds, respect for and enforcement of the open meetings act, a no vote on Formula 1, and a no vote on Water Treatment Plant #4. Early voting lasts until Tuesday, June 14th and Election Day is Saturday, June 18th. Get out there and vote again for Kathie!!
