A: I wasn’t born in Port Aransas, Nueces County, or Texas, but I got here as soon as I could. I was educated by dedicated teachers in institutions funded by the people of Texas, La Porte public schools, Rice University, the University of Texas, and the University of Texas Medical Branch. I have spent the majority of my professional career in the Emergency Departments of the inner city county hospitals of Texas. Late in my career, I worked in the Middle East, gaining first hand experience in the failed foreign policy of the United Sates which increasingly favors military intervention over diplomacy. My family is my life and the specific reason for my political activity. My parents left a better country for my generation. My generation will not do the same unless all of us wake up, pay attention, and Rise, Resist, Revolt.

Congratulations! You have taken the next step to become active in the Green Party. The Party's success in building an alternative future depends on you and what you choose to do.
There are many possibilities for participation. You could engage in traditional political activities such as block-walking, phone-banking, and tabling. Or, you could work with other Greens to create citizen media such as Greenwatch or other programs. Issues based activism is a good fit with the Green Party as we work to knit the social movements together. You let us know what you want to do, and we'll help you find a way to do it.
There are many options below. Select as many as you like!
