Day Two of the Green Party National Convention

SHARE Day Two of the Green Party National Convention

Today is day two of the Green Party’s national political convention being held in Chicago.

Things were supposed to kick off this morning with a yoga class but I’ve been here since about seven and only one person showed up. Plus, there’s no instructor, and there’s a big table in the middle of the room. So it looks like that’s not going to happen.

But a little bit later in the day there’s going to be workshops on topics ranging from fund raising for campaigns to the role of the peace movement in an election year. The big event for today isn’t until this evening when the party’s presidential candidates hold a forum.
