Ever two years, delegates to the Washington State Democrats State Convention pass a new Platform. The Platform is the document stating our beliefs and positions on issues and is critical to defining the Party and what it stands for. This year, the State Convention is on June 20th through 21st in Spokane.
Prior to the State Convention, members of the State Convention Platform Committee gather together to review previous versions of the Platform and make suggested changes, which are then forwarded on to the full Convention body in June. They also review resolutions that have been submitted for the State Convention. Whereas the Platform describes the Party’s beliefs, a resolution responds to the specific issues of the moment.
The public now has the opportunity to review these suggested changes and give their comments. These comments will go to the Committee and become part of what it forwards on to the Convention.
