Transhumanist Party (US)
The name Transhumanist Party would later be adopted by many other international organisations. It was supported by the PAC Transhumanist National Committee LLC and some US state parties. Since November 2016 leadership is transferring to Gennady Stolyarov.
October 2014 - November 2016
During this period Zoltan began an aggressive period of marketing for the organisation, including the Immortality Bus tour and a Transhumanist Bill of Rights. Such activity was often a solo endevour, with supporters around the US joining him for a variety of events and functions.
On September 19th, 2015, Hank Pellissier quit his position as secretary of the party, saying that it lacked transparency and democratic process. On October 12th Transhumanist Party UK released a statement that "Zoltan Istvan does not speak for the Transhumanist Party" in response to his failure to engage with the wider community and transhumanist party movement.
This reflected a disconnection between the existing politically engaged transhumanist community and Zoltan's activities and statements, leading to the formation of the Transhuman National Committee.
