Green Party Grows, Slowly, in the Bronx

Just 750 people in the Bronx call themselves Green Party members. But back in 1999, that number was 14. “It’s definitely growing,” said Aesha Valencia, 27, who lives in the Norwood section of the Bronx and is Green Party-registered. “There’s a lot of people out there who want to put the planet first.” Valencia said she’s tired of two-party loyalists telling her that she’s throwing away her vote or helping to get the Republican nominee for president, Donald J. Trump, elected.
