Julie Anne Genter

Green Minister for Women, Assoc. Minister of Transport and Health

I am standing for co-leader of the Green Party of Aotearoa because I believe we must grow the number of Greens in Parliament, and deliver real change to empower communities, end poverty and fight climate change.

I’m genuinely excited about the opportunities we have to do politics differently.

The Greens are the future of politics. We understand ecological limits and the intrinsic value of the natural world, as well as the fundamental responsibility we have to all other people in our society. Non-violence and democracy are the pillars of how we work - and are the only way to look after people and our planet.

Communities lead the change. The green movement needs NGOs, Iwi, unions, activists, campaigning for change.

As a political party, I believe it is our role and responsibility to effectively wield political power in Parliament to get law and policy changes that will further empower communities.

Having Green Ministers presents a new, powerful opportunity to both achieve real change, and to raise the profile of the Green Party and communicate our vision to more people.
