Event Details


Dr. Jill Stein was the Green Party’s 2012 and 2016 candidate for President. She is a mother, an organizer, physician, and pioneering environmental health advocate.

She has helped lead initiatives to fight environmental racism and injustice, to promote healthy communities, to strengthen local green economies and to revitalize democracy. She has helped win victories in campaign finance reform, racially just redistricting, green jobs, and the cleanup of incinerators, coal plants, and toxic threats. She was a co-founder of the Global Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit.

In the 2016 election, she was the only national Presidential candidate to call for health care and education as human rights, a bailout to end student debt, a welcoming path to citizenship, an emergency jobs program to solve jointly the climate and economic crises, and for demilitarization through a foreign policy based on human rights, international law and diplomacy.

Jill is currently working to build political resistance and support local Green candidates in fighting for radical progressive, sustainable solutions that are critical for a livable, just future.

Jill graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Medical School where she was an instructor in Medicine. In 2006, she transitioned from clinical medicine into “political medicine” to address "the mother of all illnesses”, our political system that must be fixed so we can deal with all the other problems that are literally killing us.
