The Platform Committee would like to go forward with an actionable platform based on a specific legislative agenda. To do this, we need to tie our platform to specific progressive legislation that has been proposed for 2018-2019. This type of platform will allow us to use it to hold our State Democratic legislators accountable for their legislative actions & inaction.
Help us to organize support for the legislative priorities that were passed by the party’s State Central Committee for the 2017 legislative session. In the article you will see the party’s priorities, how to track legislation, how to submit testimony, and how to network with others to achieve your goals.
