Houston, We Have a Solution – Vote Green 2016

420px-Green-2008-chicago.jpg

Every four years, as part of its Annual National Meeting, the Green Party of the United States holds a Presidential Nominating Convention (PNC) to select a candidate for President of the United States.  Delegates are chosen by each state party according to its own rules, either by a primary election, caucus, or state nominating convention.

This year’s PNC will be held on campus of the University of Houston, in Houston, Texas.  The University of Houston is adjacent to Texas Southern University in historic Third Ward, a central location in Houston’s African American community.

UH-cover.jpgHouston is a microcosm of the issues that face our society; a rich history paved over by gentrification, stark inequality on display next to environmentally ruined superfund sites evidencing our area’s devotion to petrochemical and other polluting industry.

As a cultural crossroads, Houston has an incredibly vibrant arts scene. From our world famous art cars, Pacifica’s KPFT, our local music scene, our museums, to the Space Center, Houston is filled with innumerable cultural attractions to satisfy any taste or curiousity.

Texas represents a unique opportunity for Green Current_Mission_Control.jpgParty growth.  In Laredo, at the heart of Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, Greens had 6 candidates with results better than 10%, including one Webb County Commissioner candidate pulling 42%.

Harris County itself also presents an enormous opportunity for Green Party growth.  Both the state and local party are eager to leverage this event as an opportunity to deliver the Green Party message.

The Annual National Meeting runs from Thursday, August 4 though Sunday, August 7, and includes the Presidential Nominating Convention which will occur on Saturday, August 6.

Convention Rules and Process


Agenda

Location and Transportation

The University of Houston is located at:

4800 Calhoun Rd, Houston, TX 77004

Houston has two airports:

Hobby is located 8 miles southeast of the University of Houston, is a major hub for SouthWest, and is also served by JetBlue, Delta, and American Airlines.

Intercontinental is located 23 miles north of the University of Houston, is a major hub for United, and is also served by Alaska, American, Frontier, and Spirit Airlines.

Shuttles, bus service, and taxis are available from both airports.

Getting from the airport to UH campus via SuperShuttle:

You do not need a reservation upon arrival into the airport, but you will need a reservation for your departure from the University back to either airport.  SuperShuttle is an on-demand, 24 hour, 7 day a week service.

When you arrive at either airport (George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and William P. Hobby (HOU)), proceed to the ticket counter located in the baggage claim area of the terminal.

Arriving at George Bush Intercontinental Airport

  • From IAH to the University of Houston the cost is $27 for the first passenger and $7 for each additional.
  • Alternatively, you can travel by taxi from the airport directly to the university from Intercontinental for about $51.  Ask the driver about the fare before leaving the airport.  Taxi fare is more expensive than the airport bus fare.  There are three UH campuses in the greater Houston area, so be sure to tell the taxi driver that the address of the University of Houston is 4800 Calhoun Road.

Arriving at William P. Hobby Airport

  • From HOU to the University of Houston the cost is $23 for the first passenger and $7 for each additional.
  • If you arrive at Houston’s Hobby Airport, you will be closer to the university.  Taxi service is located in the airport’s ground transportation area. The taxi fare from Hobby Airport is approximately $27.  It is customary to tip the driver at least 15 percent of your fare.

Guests arriving in groups of 3 or more on the same flight are able to book an Exclusive van from either airport for $75 per van, per direction.  Please note, prices may change at any time, so check with SuperShuttle before planning your trip.

Getting from the airport to UH campus via Public Transit:

Bush Intercontinental (IAH) airport: Take bus 102 from the airport to the Downtown Transit Center.  From the transit center, take the METRO Light Rail Red Line to Central Station, then Purple Line to the UH South / University Oaks stop.

Hobby (HOU) airport:  Take bus 40 from Hobby airport to the Eastwood Transit Center, then transfer to bus 25 to Wheeler St @ University Oaks Blvd. (roughly 1 hour).

Once you’ve arrived on campus, go to Registration at the Student Center South.  If you are arriving via METRO and have a lot of baggage, you may wish to meet other Greens at Cougar Village before walking up to the Student Center.  The METRO stop is much closer to Cougar Village than the Student Center.  See the interactive Campus Map for further details.

UH has an excellent Campus Shuttle.  The ANM committee has also arranged for a shuttle van for attendees who need assistance getting between the Student Center and Cougar Village / Moody Towers.

More information on local transit and travel options is available on UH Transportation page and Houston’s Metro Transit System.

Tourism and Entertainment

We should warn you that Houston is extremely hot and humid in the summer and is often subject to powerful thunderstorms. Houston is one of the largest and most diverse cities in the nation, with a metropolitan area population exceeding 6 million. The population breakdown (according to city-data.com) is 43.4% Hispanic, 23.2% Black, 6.5% Asian, and 25.3% White. Historically, Houston’s Memorial Park was once a WWI era training camp for black soldiers, Camp Logan, and was central to the 1917 Houston riot.

The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac are the Living Waters of Life-Consciousness-Spirit. These Four of the Twelve are the Realms of Awareness-Action, they are the Signs of Identity: Aries is your Self-Awareness; Libra your Awareness of the Other. Cancer is your Sacred Center; and Capricorn is your Destiny. These four corners form the Cross of Purpose; this is the Axis that leads to Apotheosis. In Aries you are Inspired by the Flame of Spirit of being a “one”, you are Self-Aware. In Libra you Know by Mindful Air, you are for one another, you are Inter-Dependent. In Cancer you Feel through the Waters of Life, you are centered and anchored by your Source. In Capricorn you are made Manifest by Earth, you assume your responsibilities as you seek to fulfill your Destiny. These Sacred Four form what is known as the Cardinal Cross; held together they are the whirling wheel that creates the Sacred Path-Way of Praxis. For this is “the Way”, that by this Integral Path that combines Inspiration, Thought, Feeling made Real, it is by this that your wondrous Journey of the Divine-that-is-the-Self-Becoming is made manifest. For you are an Immortal moving through mortal realms and forms. You move into Worlds, Bodies and Lives, but forever and ever you will always “walk on” through and beyond any one world, body or life. You are the self-becoming more and more of what you will be as you unfold the Spark of the Divine that resides at the Core of you in each and every life. And in each life you will grow and become what you are meant to be through “Trial & Error”. You will succeed at times, and you must and will also stumble. For it is by these “failures” and your adjustments that you climb the spiral path of conscious redemption. And, it is by this that you will come to understand, accept and become more of what you are here to be…a fully conscious co-creator of this Cosmos. Yes you are climbing, higher and higher, and at each turning you face again the ancient questions and fundamental truths that were there at the beginning…oh so long ago. Today, as Winter begins, when the shadows have stretched to their greatest extent, and the light seems to be fading away, it is now that you and the world will hold your breath…and you will pray. It is time once again, to face the darkness and believe, that Light and Truth and Goodness will not fade away. It is time to remember who you are, where you came from, who is before you, and why you are here…it is time once again to have a living faith in your destiny. For though it may seem that your world is falling into shadows, that your life and world is in dire peril…you will find a way through. As the familiar forms of self-realization are cracking and crumbling, whether in the realms of Religion, or Government, or Education or the Economy…you will come to know that this is merely the wheel of life turning again, for an old world is passing so that a new and better one shall rise…as it has done many, many times before. And this change, this re-birth, does not come from on high, it will not come by Fiat or by the will of the temporal holders of Power. No, the change in every world, form and life starts in the center of each and every one of you, from within each and every individual heart that hears the “Wind of the Spirit” and answers to the angels of our better nature. It is the "Voice of the Silence", your Higher Self abiding in the Intuitive Knowing that a better world is coming to be…and that you must be its Creator. Each year, at this time of Capricorn, you are asked to examine quite simply this one question, “What is the Responsible thing to do, what is my Responsibility?" To understand this you need but turn that word around. Your responsibility is always and forever about your “ability to respond”. To what, you might ask. What or to who are you responding? How can you know? How? Know Thyself! You are a Spark of the Divine, moving now through this Kingdom of being Human. It is in this time of your Spiritual Education that you are to learn what is “the good”, for you are endowed with the gift of choice, (and angels and those greater than they envy you this choice). You are given this gift so that you might learn to choose what is good, or better or loving. So that you can become a conscious, loving co-creator of creation. For today, in this time, you are here to respond to the needs of yourself, your family, your friends and to all of those with whom you journey. For you have come far and learned much, and you are only here now because you have taken care of one another, helped one another, and loved one another so as to create and form these living-loving spaces for one another that can preserve, protect and promote Life-Consciousness-Spirit. Remain focused upon this, and you will keep to the pathway of Spirit. There is much work to do when a world is passing away and another is coming into being. Your responsibility is great, but so is your reward. Preserve what you can, for many lives and loves fashioned this world and much in it is good. Be guided by your heart and know that the changes you must face and make should be guided always by the fundamental truth that you are here for one another, you are made by one another, and to harm any other inevitably means that you injure yourself equally too. Today you need remember, that even in the darkest hour, there remains a Light that will not go out, a Love that will not fail, and a Promise that will be Fulfilled. And this is so because you stand within a shining Hierarchy of Light that stretches from the Heart of Creation to the furthest reaches of this Cosmos. Every being within this Company of Brave Souls is slowly awakening to the truth, that all are sparks of the Divine, and in the heart of each soul there is found the Alignment and Attunement to one another. All of Creation is of the One, and every particle, life, planet, star and galaxy are At-Onement through and by the Love of the One, and by your love for one another too. At each and every turning, you will face your destiny. It is right, proper and good to align yourself with those like you who seek to bring about a better tomorrow. As we move from one world into the next, keep in your heart the Great Invocation: THE GREAT INVOCATION From the point of light within the Mind of God Let Light stream forth into our minds Let LIGHT descend on Earth. From the point of love within the Heart of God Let Love stream forth into our hearts May LOVE increase on Earth. From the center where the Will of God is known Let purpose guide our wills The PURPOSE which the masters know and serve. From the center which we call Humanity Let the Plan of Love and Light work out And may it seal the door where evil dwells. Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Galvan Name Meaning Spanish (Galván): from a medieval personal name. This is in origin the Latin name Galbanus (a derivative of the Roman family name Galba, of uncertain origin). However, it was used in a number of medieval romances as an equivalent of the Celtic name Gawain (see Gavin), and it is probably this association that was mainly responsible for its popularity in the Middle Ages. • Location: Beaumont/Pt Arthur, College Station, Galveston, Houston, Huntsville
