The Green Party is a political party in the United States which places a strong emphasis on environmentalism. It supports many liberal social policies, as well as advocating moving politics to the grassroots and community level. It also supports debt reduction, a conservative principle, though it generally supports doing this by raising taxes on the upper income brackets and cutting military spending.

There are other Green parties throughout the world, though most, if not all act independently of each other.

The Green Party's nominee for President in 1996 and 2000 was Ralph Nader, but not in 2004 or 2008, when Nader ran as an independent, nor in 1992 when Nader ran as a write-in candidate in the New Hampshire Democratic primary. In 2008, the Green Party nominee was ultraliberal former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney of Georgia.
