We've come a long way since the Unity Reform Commission was unanimously adopted by 4,500 Democratic convention delegates in Philadelphia.
Recently, DNC's Rules and Bylaws Committee took up the URC's final recommendations, and Chairman Tom Perez said publicly that he wants them passed in full. Our mandates are not aspirations. They have already been debated and negotiated. The DNC should adopt and implement these reforms.
We're working with progressive partners across the country to push these changes over the finish line. Join us in taking the first step by signing the petition to your state's DNC members today and tell them to support the URC recommendations.
Here are the major URC mandates:
Most of these actions require state party reform, a critical step to opening the Democratic Party to the grassroots. Our reforms are meant to deconstruct those obstacles and promote grassroots participation in our democracy.
Our team spent nine months negotiation these reforms which required compromise from all sides. It wasn't always easy and, in the end, we may not have gotten everything we wanted. But we believe that these are important reforms that should be implemented to begin the long work to rebuild our party. It's time to implement these changes so that we can have real unity and reform.
