Our platform focuses on four main areas:
Black Lives Matter – We must acknowledge that slavery is the greatest American stain, a crime so horrible, a legacy so cruel, a shame so deep — an unforgivable act. Decades of bitter turmoil lead up to the American Civil War, Secession, the Emancipation Proclamation and Reconstruction. We embrace our great American president Abraham Lincoln and his vindication of democracy and preservation of our Union. Black Lives Matter is a bold reaction to the lingering remnants of slave-owner mentality. We must legally ensure that African Americans are no longer targets of voter suppression. We must protect African Americans from unfair lengthy jail sentences and unequal treatment in legal matters. We must prohibit the practice of forcing African Americans to plead guilty to crimes they did not commit. We must weed out law enforcement officers who murder African Americans for no other reason than that they are African Americans. Speak up instead of remaining silent in the face of injustice. Support African-American-owned businesses. America will only be great when there is justice for all.

Gay Rights – We must acknowledge our history of unjust treatment of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Americans who have been targets of unfair discrimination. We fully embrace marriage equality that is finally the law of the land. Support LGBT-owned businesses. Speak up instead of remaining silent in the face of injustice. The United States of America will only be great when there is justice for all.
Green – We must acknowledge the environmental damage that Americans have done on land and at sea. We fully embrace the environmental protections that people in the world’s Green Parties so enthusiastically promote.
Metrication – We must acknowledge that there are very strong economic and scientific reasons for America to mandate the exclusive use of the International System of Units (SI). The cost of ignoring SI is increasing with the trend toward globalization. Without measurement harmony, the United States could lose its competitive edge in science and technology and create bilateral trade impediments with other countries. Any cost would be quickly recovered by the economic benefits of global interoperability. This is particularly important as the dominance of United States companies is being challenged in the competitive atmosphere of globalization. Mandating the exclusive use of SI would likely result in the creation of many jobs and better prepare our workforce in the international marketplace.

Green Disk represents the aspirations of the world’s Green Parties.
Ten Stars represent Modern Era high technology requiring precise measurements.
Ten Stars (each star having Ten Sides) represent the fundamental International System scheme:

10 cm = 1 dm (10 centimeters = 1 decimeter)
10 dm = 1 m (10 decimeters = 1 meter)
10 m = 1 dam (10 meters = 1 dekameter)
10 dam = 1 hm (10 dekameters = 1 hectometer)
10 hm = 1 km (10 hectometers = 1 kilometer)
