Monday, August 24, 2020. New York City – Most people know about Vice President Mike Pence and Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris.
Angela Walker is the vice-presidential nominee of the Green Party of the United States of America in 2020. Howie Hawkins is the presidential nominee of the Green Party of the United States of America in 2020.
If you are progressive, then Angela Walker is an option for you. If you are tired of corrupt politicians, then Angela Walker is an option for you. If you do not want “top cop” Kamala Harris, then Angela Walker is an option for you. If you support Medicare For All, Green New Deal, legalization of marijuana, etc., then Angela Walker is an option for you.
If you supported Bernie Sanders for president, then Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker are the option for you.
On August 21, 2020, Rahm Emanuel said, Two things I would say if I was advising Joe Bide: “One is no there’s no new Green Deal, there’s no Medicare For All, probably the single two topics that were discussed the most. That’s not even in the platform.” Emanuel also said, “This will be the year of the Biden Republican.”
Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are against Medicare For All and the Green New Deal.
Corrupt Republican and Democrat politicians do not work for the people. Corrupt politicians work for their corrupt donors.
Andy Serwer with Max Zahn wrote the article “Here are the CEOs and companies that support Trump…and Biden.” Part of the article says, “First, when it comes to money, “Trump is outraising Biden,” says Sarah Bryner, research director at the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks and analyzes money in politics. “Primarily his lead is in getting money from small donors. [But] Biden is outraising Trump in money from the financial sector,” and collecting a great deal of money from other businesses as well.”

The biography of Angela walker on HowieHawkins.us says, “”Angela Walker is an independent socialist who describes herself as “a Fred Hampton, Assata Shakur socialist.” She was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to a working-class Black family. She learned early that though money was necessary to live in this society, it was less important than integrity, cooperation, and dignity. This upbringing shaped the activist and organizer she later became.
The first mass mobilization Angela attended was during the demand for the recount of ballots in the 2000 Florida election. She joined a contingent of people who traveled to Tallahassee, Florida to protest widespread discrepancies with the ballots in the election. That experience marked the first of many protests she would attend, and illustrated the power of people coming together to stand up for their rights. In subsequent years, Angela would participate in actions against the war in Iraq in New York and Washington, DC while a driver for Greyhound Lines.
In 2014, Angela was approached by Rick Kissell, a lifelong socialist and friend, to run as an independent socialist against the cowboy-hatted incumbent, Sheriff David Clarke. The campaign served as a platform to discuss the root causes of crime in Milwaukee, which included the incarceration of people for nonviolent marijuana offenses, the reduction of access to adequate healthcare, un- and underemployment in the inner city, blighted neighborhoods created by foreclosures, and the pervasive systemic racism at the core of these issues. The campaign earned twenty percent of the vote in the election and got the attention of the Left across the country.
Angela went to work for Wisconsin Jobs Now in 2015, as Community Campaigns Coordinator for the organization. Her work focused primarily on resistance to the privatization of public schools in Milwaukee. During her time with the organization, she was approached by Emidio “Mimi” Soltysik of the Socialist Party USA about running for Vice President of the United States. She agreed to be Mimi’s running mate for the 2016 election. Despite SPUSA’s limited ballot access on the continental United States, the Soltysik/Walker ticket did well in Guam, garnering four percent of the vote there. When Wisconsin Jobs Now folded in late 2016, Angela moved to South Carolina to regroup and reconsider her relationship to activism and politics.
Initially, on arrival in South Carolina, Angela worked as a substitute teacher at the secondary education level. During the summer break of 2017, she began work as a dump truck driver and continues that work presently. When Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins asked her about being his running mate for the 2020 presidential election, Angela stated “how could I say no?”
Angela Walker is the mother of one, and the grandmother of five. She is a fierce advocate for the rights of Black, Brown and Indigenous people, the LGBTQIA community, Labor and the Earth itself.”
