Media Advisory

Jill Stein will launch her Presidential Campaign Monday, Oct. 24 at 12:30pm at the State House in Boston, MA.

She vows to end unemployment in America and to stop the Wall Street robbery of Maine Street.

DATE OF EVENT: Monday Oct 24
TIME: 12:30 pm
LOCATION:  State House, 24 Beacon Street, Boston (outside)

Dr. Jill Stein, the recent Green-Rainbow Party candidate for Governor of Massachusetts, will announce her candidacy for President of the United States on Monday October 24 on the steps of the State House in Boston at 12:30 PM.

A key focus on Stein's campaign will be a Green New Deal to end unemployment in America and jump start a real recovery from the Bush/Obama recession. The Green New Deal will provide public jobs to the 16% of Americans who need one, including green jobs that will transition America to a secure, green economy for the 21st Century.

Dr. Stein seeks to reverse the growing concentration of power and wealth in the hands of the top 1%, an increasingly urgent problem given the rising problems of unemployment, poverty and economic distress afflicting vast numbers of Americans. 

Stein charges that President Obama has betrayed the voting blocs that came together to elect him in 2008, raising hope for change, but simply continuing the policies of George Bush once elected: escalating the wars in the Middle East; extending the Bush tax cuts while largely ignoring the unemployment crisis; and failing to take action on climate change.  

As a medical doctor who ran against Mitt Romney in the 2002 Governor's race, Stein has been a critic of "Romneycare" that was the model for "Obamacare".  She wants to make health care a universal right and supports the adoption of a single payer, improved Medicare for All program as the only financially affordable path to quality health care for all.

Dr. Stein will seek the Presidential nomination of the Green Party. She expects to qualify for the ballot in at least 40 states. She also expects to qualify for Presidential primary matching funds. 

Dr. Jill Stein is a mother, housewife, physician, longtime teacher of internal medicine, and pioneering environmental-health advocate. Dr. Stein graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1973, and from Harvard Medical School in 1979. She is the co-author of In Harm's Way: Toxic Threats to Child Development, and Environmental Threats to Healthy Aging.

Paid for by Jill Stein for President.
