Party Platform

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.

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.
