Are you a Green candidate?
Are you working on a Green campaign?
Are you interested in media outreach to promote the Green Party?
If so, please join us at our Green Media Workshops, Thursday and Friday at the Green Party's 2012 National Convention in Baltimore, July 12-15.
Every Green campaign should have a media outreach component. Every state and local Green Party should have a media director or media committee. At the workshops, you'll learn all the basics of Green media work. Take one, two, or all three workshops.
