Jeff Sutter, appointed to the Accreditation Committee by the Indiana Party, has authored a minority report in response to GNC #1062. Yet, in violation of the rules, party leadership seem to have suppressed its publication, failing to link it from the proposal itself, or to publish it within the archives of the national party, as if the intention is to disappear it from the history of the party.
A vote was conducted in the Accreditation Committee on this proposal to refer the complaint of the National Lavender Caucus to the National Green Committee. The vote was scheduled to conclude at 10:00 am on Monday, June 21st, 2021.
The Steering Committee has scheduled the question for a two week debate, followed by a one week vote, set to conclude on July 25th, 2021.
Madame and Mister Co-Chairs,
members of the Accreditation Committee:
Please find attached, the documents listed below, including our witness list for an evidentiary hearing on the outstanding issues of material fact at issue in the complaint of the National Lavender Caucus vs. the Georgia Green Party.
We urge that you communicate directly with Hugh Esco, Secretary and Ann Menasche, counsel regarding the scheduling of witnesses for testimony before the Committee.
To: Andy Ellis, Co-Chair
Lyn Maravelle, Co-Chair
Accreditation Committee of the Green Party of the United States
CC: David Gerry, Secretary

Re: Request notice of proceedings in the matter of
National Lavender Caucus vs. Georgia Green Party
I write at the direction of the state committee of the Georgia Green
Party, meeting this past Sunday evening. The officers of the Georgia
Green Party are dismayed that we must chase rumors of proceedings,
presumably under way within the Accreditation Committee, without our
having ever been afforded notice by your committee of your rules, time
frame or hearing schedule.
The only rules we have access to, which have never been ratified by the
National Committee, is a document labeled 'Proposed Rules', leaving one
in doubt as to their enforce-ability.
We have to ask, why is it you folks can not even provide us as the
respondants in your proceedings the courtesy of proper notice addressed
to the officers of this state party?
The Accreditation Committee of the Green Party of the United States has given notice to the officers of the Georgia Green Party of their intention to give consideration as early as January 22nd, 2021 to a complaint filed by the co-chair of the National Lavender Green Caucus seeking the dis-accreditation of the Georgia Green Party.
Please find attached a complaint filed against the Georgia Green Party in the Accreditation Committee.
