The Green Party prepares for its 2010 Annual National Meeting

WASHINGTON, DC -- The Green

Party of the United States will hold its 2010 Annual National Meeting in Detroit, Michigan, from Thursday, June 24 to Sunday, June 27.

The Green Party's meeting will overlap with the United States Social Forum, which convenes in Detroit from June 22 to 26. Many Greens will also participate in the US Social Forum. More than ten thousand activists, organizers, artists, and others from the US and many more from other countries are expected to attend the Social Forum.

National, state, and local Green Party leaders, Green candidates, and many others will participate in the Detroit meeting, which will be hosted by local Greens and the Green Party of Michigan. Plenary sessions, press conferences, workshops, committees, public forums, and other features are now being planned for the meeting.

The slogan for the Green Party meeting is "Another US is possible, another party is necessary" -- similar to the Social Forum motto, "Another world is possible."

The Green Party's 2009 Annual National Meeting took place in Durham, North Carolina. The 2008 meeting, which was the party's Presidential Nominating Convention, was held in Chicago, Illinois.
