Green Party of Rhode Island

The Green Party of Rhode Island was founded in Providence in 1992, just eight years after the first U.S. Green party in Maine, and just two years after the Green Party of Alaska became the first to win legal status. Rhode Island Greens were present when 12 state parties joined together in 1996, in Middleburg, Virginia, to found the national Association of State Green Parties (ASGP), and again in 2001 when ASGP became the Green Party of the United States. In fact, while our members have always been local activists first, they have served in key national positions including national secretary and international committee chair, and have represented U.S. Greens at meetings in Australia, Canada, Italy, and the Dominican Republic.
