MultDems are developing drafts and study groups for their new platform from now until the convention November 2019.

Contribute to the Platform: Pre-Platform Convention Meeting August 3rd

Join your fellow Multnomah County Democrats for our Pre-Platform Convention meeting on Saturday, August 3rd from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Party Headquarters at 3551 NE Sandy Blvd., Portland.

We are beginning the process of developing our 2020-21 Platform, and this meeting is the first step in reviewing and gathering ideas that will guide us in the next biennium. This will be an opportunity for you to share your priorities as we collaborate together in preparation for the November Platform Convention.

To get prepared, review the Preambles for the 2018 Platform and the proposed Articles for the 2020 Platform. Take a moment to review and then we welcome your comments on this survey.

The meeting agenda shows the proposed times for discussion of each Article during the 10:00 am to 3:00 pm meeting. Articles will be introduced with comment periods. You will learn how to connect for further collaboration and to let us know your interest. Or email platform@multdems.org. Information and ideas from this meeting will be incorporated into the 1st Draft of the 2020 Platform which will be distributed in September.

If you are unable to attend please fill out the Survey of ideas to be considered for inclusion in the articles of the 1st Draft of the 2020 Platform and send it to platform@multdems.org.

Work Groups and the Platform committee will be reviewing and redrafting the Platform, with your help, over the next few months in preparation for our Platform Convention in November. We value your recommendations and look forward to hearing from you.
