The Massachusetts Democratic Party will be establishing our platform for the next four years at our convention in June in Worcester. We are almost through our caucus period.
Whether or not you are a delegate to the State Convention, there is still the opportunity to take part in the process of developing the Platform.
1) There are still some caucuses that have not yet been held. Here is the schedule.
2) For youth, minorities and those with disabilities there is an add-on process. The deadline is April 4 at 5:00 pm. You can apply online here.
3) There is a Platform Committee which will be conducting hearings across the state. The MDP recently announced the selection of three members to chair our platform committee: Former Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Murphy, Suffolk County Sheriff Steve Tompkins, and former Massachusetts State Director for Bernie Sanders for President Paul Feeney. The schedule has been published and locations are in the process of being finalized. Information on schedules and an overview of the Platform can be found here. People can attend a platform hearing or submit testimony online.
4) In addition to Platform Hearings, Democratic Town/Ward/City Committees, DSC members and Democratic organizations can host Platform Meetings. Information on Platform Meetings can is here. срочные займы до зарплаты
