Western Hemispheric Summit




WHEREAS, President Obama is well liked and enjoying high popular marks and is respected in Latin America for his global, forward -looking vision of mutual global responsibility, and

WHEREAS, President Obama is to be congratulated on his recent announcement that "in 2014 he plans to host the first of its kind, a summit of leaders from across sub-Saharan Africa in the United States,"

WHEREAS, The United States of America shares not only the Hemisphere with all the Americas but we share a common history and many of the same problems facing the world today, such as failing economies, climate change, immigration, drug wars, human rights violations, to name a few, and the US must continue working to solve these problems in cooperation and agreement with our neighbors.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the California Democratic Party recommends that our nation take the lead in organizing a summit of leaders as we are doing with the sub Saharan African Leaders and in the near future open dialogue with all countries of the Latin America hemisphere and that it be conducted in a process in which all countries take responsibility and act within their national interest based on mutual respect and develop solutions to address our many diverse issues, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this resolution is sent to President Obama and all of the California Congressional Delegation for action.
