From Wisconsin Democratic National Committee member, Jason Rae:
Today, the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) released the draft of the 2016 Democratic Party Platform that was adopted last weekend in St. Louis by the Platform Drafting Committee. You can read a copy of the draft platform here.
The platform draft addresses many issues and topics including the economy, education, reproductive rights, criminal justice, immigration, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, and more.
The full 187-member Platform Committee will gather next week, July 8 and 9, in Orlando, Florida to review and adopt the draft to be presented at the Convention in Philadelphia.
I’d encourage you to take a moment to review the platform. For your convenience, I’ve also posted a press release from the DNCC below that highlights the drafting process, as well as some of the significant advancements made in it.
I hope that you have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July!
So after all of the rumor and half truths and innuendo about the draft platform, here it is! Knock yourselves out.
