Black Friday is less than one week away. Even as the numbers reveal that worker pay has not matched the rate of inflation or corporate profit in 2021, big business is projecting record profits this time around.
The Muskegon Greens have always supported our local communities and the small locally-owned businesses which can sustain them. But we need YOUR help! This Black Friday, resist the temptation to shop corporate-owned. Whenever possible, find a locally-owned small business replacement. Need some help? Check out some of our recommended locally-owned business below! Have suggestions? Let us know so we can share them!

Name: ??? Position: You choose!
For many years, the Green Party has been consistantly misrepresented and bullied by the two major U.S. political parties. In a true democracy, this would never be accepted as the norm. The people of the lakeshore, the state of Michigan and across the country want and deserve more political choices.
Registering to vote as a Green is a commitment to building an institution to fight for the world you want. Party affiliation doesn't begin and end with one election. Registering to vote or changing your party registration can be done on-line at vote.gov. The more people who register Green, the stronger the Green Party is, and the more all parties will take green issues and green voters seriously.
Registering Green does not limit your voting options in general elections.
In states with "open" primaries, your registering Green also does not limit your voting options in the primary election. In states with "closed" primaries, however, if you register Green you will only be able to vote in Green primaries. Check with your Board of Elections.
The Green Party represents most Americans' views on issues like healthcare, a healthy environment, campaign finance reform, corporate power, genetically modified foods, and others. Read the Green Party Platform. Then, scroll down and REGISTER, today!
