Register Here for Friday April 30, 2021, @ 12:00PM – 2:00PM – 2021 State Convention Affirmative Committee Meeting.
Our Party must foster an environment that is welcoming, inviting, and inclusive of every Democrat committed to our collective work. This work is not easy and requires a long-term commitment. Yet, it is vital to our success.
To that end, we will merge two current committees – the Standing Committee on Organizational Development and the Standing Committee on Affirmative Action – into one new committee – the Standing Committee on Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
In addition to integrating the historic responsibilities of the two former committees, the new committee will focus on long-term culture change in our Party including, but not limited to: (1) improving our Code of Conduct process and procedures, (2) expanding our Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion (JEDI) Program to inform and educate Party leaders and Delegates, and (3) implementing our steps on anti-racism and racial justice to ensure full, fair, and equitable access to our Party for every Democrat.
