Dr. Jill Stein
was the Green Party 2012 candidate for president of the United States. She is a mother, physician, and pioneering environmental-health advocate who has been on the front lines of battles to stop tar sands oil, fracking and nuclear power, and to create 25 million healthy, green jobs instead. She has worked to get big money out of politics, to provide health care and education as human rights, to end student debt, home foreclosures, wars for oil, Wall Street bail outs, and tax giveaways for the wealthy.
Dr. Stein now serves as President of the Green Shadow Cabinet
, which watchdogs and debunks the corporate-sponsored political establishment, and raises the bar for solutions that are available to us right now. Dr. Stein is a Harvard trained clinical doctor who served for decades as an instructor in internal medicine. Now she practices "political medicine", addressing the "mother of all illnesses" - the moribund political system that needs emergency resuscitation to start healing all the all the other things that are literally killing us.
