Resolution to Defend California’s Accomplishments


Resolution to Defend California’s Accomplishments

WHEREAS California Democrats have led the nation in raising wages and improving working conditions, confronting the existential threat of climate change, expanding health care for children and families, integrating all of our law-abiding immigrants into our communities without fear of separation from their families, and protecting the rights of all Californians; and 

WHEREAS Donald Trump and the Republicans’ policies would increase inequality and cost American jobs, and his campaign emboldened bigotry and misogyny in our communities and our schools; and

WHEREAS Governor Jerry Brown stated that “we will protect the precious rights of our people and continue to confront the existential threat of our time – devastating climate change”; Senator-elect Kamala D. Harris stated that “we have the power to give a voice to the voiceless and advance an agenda rooted in justice and equality”; and California’s Legislative leaders stated that “we will lead the resistance to any effort that would shred our social fabric or our Constitution”; 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the California Democratic Party join with Governor Brown and Democratic leaders in the Legislature and Congress to defend our accomplishments and the people of California from unjust and unconstitutional federal actions affecting our state.  

Sponsored by California Democratic Party Chairman John L. Burton and the Resolutions Committee.
