Although American voters will be choosing between the Democratic and Republican parties for our next president, Biden and Trump aren’t the only two candidates running.
Howie Hawkins, co-founder of the Green Party and the party’s 2020 candidate, is running to put an ecosocialist program on the agenda, as well as to draw more attention to the climate change crisis and economic justice for low-income Americans. Although Hawkins and other third-party candidates will not win the election, Hawkins hopes that his campaign will help American politics pull away from an entrenched two-party system and bring more progressive issues to mainstream attention.
Today on AirTalk, we’re speaking with Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins about his platform and his hopes for the future of the Green Party. Questions? Call 866-893-5722.
