Noam Chomsky - Institute Professor, MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy
"Join me in building demand for progressive change with the Green Party and Jill Stein’s presidential campaign. People around the world wish they had a voice in American politics. We have the capacity to direct leaders to international war, shape relations in the Middle East, and peak or crash markets in far-reaching places. Our national policies that in turn shape policies in every corner of the earth." Read more...
Chris Hedges - Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and senior fellow at the Nation Institute
"The November election is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats. It is not a battle between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. It is a battle between the corporate state and us. And if we do not immediately engage in this battle we are finished, as climate scientists have made clear. I will defy corporate power in small and large ways. I will invest my energy now solely in acts of resistance, in civil disobedience and in defiance. Those who rebel are our only hope. And for this reason I will vote next month for Jill Stein."

Rosa Clemente - Community Organizer, Independent Journalist, Hip Hop Activist
"The Green Party is no longer the alternative; the Green Party is the imperative."
Jared Ball - Associate Communications Professor, Morgan State University; Radio producer and host, WPFW, Washington, DC
"Our only hope for electoral politics is to develop viable alternatives to what currently exists. If we are to vote, we must develop a party worthy of that effort and struggle. It is the Green Party that best represents that hope."
David Swanson - Author of War is a Lie and also of Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial President and Forming a More Perfect Union
"We can't afford to let this opportunity slip by. By taking action... the peace community has a chance to inject a compelling and courageous peace advocate into the 2012 presidential campaign, to have a voice in the national debate over war, militarism, and military spending."
David Cobb - Spokesperson, Move to Amend; Steering Committee Member, Democracy Unlimited Humboldt County
"Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala are not only leaders of the growing movements for peace, justice, democracy and ecology - they come out of the movement. These strong Green women have the courage, vision and commitment we so desperately need - and so richly deserve - from our political leaders. I am proud to be voting for Jill and Cheri."
Medea Benjamin - Co-founder of CODEPINK
Leah Bolger - retired Naval Commander and current President of Veterans for Peace

Bruce Gagnon - Coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space.
Kevin Zeese - It's Our Economy
Dr. Andy Coates - national President-elect, Physicians for a National Health Program
"When President Obama slammed the door in the face of single-payer health care advocates, and abandoned the "public option", it seemed that we were doomed to debating slight variations on the failing status quo. But in the wake of the Obamacare/Romneycare crackup, we have an incredible opportunity to reframe the health care debate by injecting a long-time advocate for Medicare-for-All (single-payer) into the presidential dialogue."

"Dr. Jill Stein represents the vision of a government that has the resolve to turn an exclusive corporate-driven war machine into an inclusive peace economy with sustainable jobs for all."
Alex Winter - Actor and director, Trouper Productions
"In this wearying election season, where the two most visible candidates are primarily focused on generalized partisan rhetoric, Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala have often been the only voices of truth, specificity and depth. They represent a vital and rare political party that genuinely represents the interests of the people."
Kahlil Jacobs Fantauzzi - Mayoral Candidate, Berkeley, CA
DLabrie - Hip Hop Artist, President of RonDavoux Records and Community Organizer, Oakland, CA
Ashley Proctor - Community Organizer, Oakland, CA
Kimberly King - Assistant Psychology Professor, California State University Los Angeles; Producer, The Beautiful Struggle, KPFK
"I am proud to endorse Green Party candidates Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala, because they represent the hopes of poor and working class Americans and all who love justice for a government that listens to and takes good care of its people. I agree with the Green Party slogan, “Another US is possible. Another party is necessary.” The current two-party system serves multinational corporations and the interests of the wealthiest Americans, at the expense of most Americans. I support Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala’s emphasis on a Green New Deal, which includes full employment at a living wage, health care, and safe affordable housing. As a college professor, one of the most important issues for me is public education. I have seen public education be attacked by the previous 2 administrations, Obama and Bush, with new legislation that blames teachers and students rather than trying to find solutions to provide quality education for all children. Stein and Honkala advocate for the right to a tuition-free, quality, federally funded, locally controlled public education system from pre-school through college. I am proud to cast my vote for Dr. Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala on Nov. 6, 2012."

She has a deep feeling for the predicament of American workers and she opposes the agressive imperialism we see supported by both Democrats and Republicans. How could I not support her candidacy?"

"Ever since I was old enough to vote, people have told me you have to vote either Republican or Democrat or your vote does not count. Obediently, at every other election, I have voted for a Democrat despite my personal impression about who could actually make the country and the world a better place to live. The people who guided me were wrong. None of my previous votes counted. This election for the first time my vote is going to count." Read full endorsement
Canvass for a Cause
"For too long we have been told we can only choose between the lesser of two evils. We believe a movement of the people is the only way to truly represent ourselves, but are happy to see the work done by these two amazing women. Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala, the Green Party representatives, have fought back on the front lines against illegal foreclosures, the debate lockouts for third party candidates, and the Keystone XL pipeline construction. They represent people working WITH the people, not just saying they will in the future. They believe in health care for all and ending the billion-dollar bailouts to multi-national corporations, as well as ending the Oil Wars, Patriot Act, indefinite detention of American citizens, and more."
Cabo Granato - Founding member, New Jersey United Students; SGA President of Rutgers Newark
"The state of higher education in the United States is in dire need of reform. The continually rising cost of tuition is creating a situation where many people who aspire to go to college cannot, because they simply cannot afford the high price tag. Jill Stein understands that the current system of high-cost tuition, mounting student debt, and faltering student aid simply cannot last. On November 6, we urge you to cast your vote for the candidate who will truly reform our failing educational system and usher country into the 21st century with an education system that truly works for all. Vote Jill Stein for President." Read full endorsement

“As the political landscape in this country moves to the right, the Democrats will always be somewhat less bad than the Republicans. But if progressive movements want to stop the dangerous rightward drift in American politics, we need to declare our independence of both corporate-controlled parties and start to build an alternative. The longer we wait, the harder it will be."

"It is time to end the destruction, the austerity, and the needless suffering. A moral government would honor the sacredness of human life by ensuring jobs, housing, health care, and education for every family. Martin Luther King once said America has the resources and the technology to end poverty; the only question is whether we have the will. It is up to us to start creating that will by taking decisive action right now. We support Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala for President and Vice President of the United States of America."

"Climate change is the gravest environmental, social and economic peril that humanity has ever faced. Across the planet, it is causing vanishing polar ice, melting glaciers, growing deserts, more violent storms, rising oceans, less biodiversity, deepening droughts, as well as more disease, hunger, strife and human misery. Jill Stein of the Green Party is the only national presidential candidate who shows the commitment needed to address this urgent problem. She supports reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere to below 350 ppm. We urge those who want action on climate change to vote for her on November 6." Read full endorsement
