Platform Proposals


Platform Hearings

Platform Hearings were held over Zoom webinar. We will be voting to approve the platform on Saturday, after we vote on the Credentialing Report. This is the final step in a months-long platform process. Please see the rules by which our convention is governed.

5-8.2(b) To address the convention, a delegate is required to register, with their name, delegation, draft Platform provision to be addressed, and their position on such provision with the Convention facilitation team not later than noon Eastern Time on Thursday, July 9.

If you wish to make a motion to strike: 5-8.2(b) also states:

A delegate may make a motion to strike a provision from the platform if they have also presented signatures of at least 10 percent of convention delegates in support of that motion at the time they register to speak by noon Eastern Time Thursday, July 9.

Delegates must use Loomio to submit a request to speak OR make a motion to strike. Please see your Loomio account for details on how to gather those signatures electronically from Delegates -- or to see who else is gathering them!


Please review the draft Platform proposals before Saturday, July 11th:

Sunday, July 5th from 7:00-8:30pm Eastern โ€” Partial Audio Recording (mp3)

Monday, July 6th from 7:00-8:30pm Eastern โ€” Audio Recording (mp3)
