Resolution Calling on California Representatives to Support Wisconsin Workers

Resolution Number 11-04.33

Whereas we, members of the California Democratic Party recognize the importance of protecting the hard-fought rights of workers to collectively bargain and exercise their voice; and

Whereas we, who worked hard for progressive change in America, want our elected representatives to echo our support for the rights of public workers in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana, and other states; and

Whereas we, the heart and soul of the Democratic Party, acknowledge the current pernicious threats to our democracy;

Therefore be it resolved that we urge our President, California House and Senate delegation to express, both in word and in deed, their solidarity with Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, and Indiana workers by going to those states to stand alongside our brothers and sisters in this pivotal struggle and watershed moment, when the forces of privatization and unmitigated greed bypass democratic protocols; and

Be It Further Resolved, that copies of this resolution shall be sent to the White House, California Congressional delegation, the Chair of the Democratic National Committee, and the California Democratic Party media list.
