Green Party Black Caucus partners with Brothers and Sisters International and Bassin Zim EDF to help earthquake victims in Haiti

Our hearts go out to our Brothers and Sisters in Haiti in the wake of yet another terrible disaster.  The Green Party Black Caucus in Partnership with Brothers and Sisters International have supported the efforts of Bassin Zim Education and Development Fund's SEEDS for HAITI  emergency initiative since its launch in March 2009.  The goal at that time was to raise $115,000, provide 5,000 Haitian peasant families each with enough to buy bean and corn seeds to prevent post-hurricane famine.

That goal is a mere drop in the bucket compared to what is needed now.  We need to increase our efforts by doing all we can and then some.   By working directly with Black Caucus member,  Paul Pumphrey of Brothers and Sisters International we increase the chances of getting the help directly to victims and  their families both here in the United States and in Haiti.

Please help the earthquake victims in Haiti...

NEW Court Order to Rule on Gordon v. Biden without Oral Argument

On Monday, January 11, 2010 the  court  concluded, on its own motion, that oral argument would not assist the court in the case of Gorden v. Biden.

Asa Gordon's  Oral Argument on Democratizing the Electoral College, a major voting rights civil action  endorsed by the Green Party Black Caucus in 2004, had been scheduled for oral argument in the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia (No. 09-5142) on Thursday, January 14, 2010.    "...Accordingly, the court will dispose of the appeal without oral argument on the basis of the record and the presentations in the briefs. See Fed. R. App. 34(a)(2); D.C. Cir. Rule 34(j)."

Asa Gordon, chair of the DC Statehood Green Party's Electoral College Task Force and executive director of the Douglass Institute of Government filed this civil action in the US District Court for the District of Columbia (1:08-cv-01294) on July 28, 2008 to protect the rights of presidential electors and the voters they represent. 

Since the debacle of the 2000 presidential election, the DC Statehood Green Party, in partnership with the Douglass Institute of Government, has led the way in educating the general citizenry of their constitutional "right to vote" under the provisions of paragraph two of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution (Amend. XIV§2) and statutory code (2U.S.C.§6)
