||The "Four Pillars" that are the basis for the Green Party around the world are: Ecological Wisdom - a healthy society cannot exist without a healthy environment - all things are interconnected and interdependent. Both nature and humanity are worthy of respect and freedom from exploitation; Social Justice - Greens want to replace the worldwide system of poverty and injustice with a world free of all oppression based on class, gender, race, citizenship, age, or sexual orientation; Grassroots Democracy - Greens believe in direct participation by all people in the environmental, political, and economic decions that affect their lives. In practice, Greens make decisions by voluntary consensus whenever possible; Nonviolence - Greens promote nonviolent methods to oppose practices and policies with which we disagree, and guide our actions toward lasting community and global peace. Membership is open to all students interested in participating with the Marquette and local government, and an awareness or desire/willingness to live with sustainability and Green Party ideals in mind.
