Resisting the Trump Agenda

RESOLUTION 17-05.21


Resisting the Trump Agenda

WHEREAS it is clear that President Trump’s agenda is to gut and/or end policies and laws such as the social safety net (social security, medicare, the ACA, etc.), privatize and monetize institutions and services (prisons, schools, highways, federal lands, etc.) eliminate protections for our citizens (environmental laws, workers rights, human and minority rights, voters rights, etc.), put forward less progressive policies (tax structures, class actions, consumer protections, etc.), and establish policies that make people less safe and secure (gun control, police reform, consumer protection, immigration reform, etc.); and

WHEREAS it has and always will be a guiding principle of Democrats to fight for and to champion these values and institutions while defending any and all efforts to dismantle these hard won rights; that all citizens deserve having a government that is behind them, to protect and serve them, to give them opportunities and to even the playing field no matter one’s age, gender, race, religion, wealth or abilities; and

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the California Democratic Party urges our Senators and Representatives to continue resisting this agenda by exposing President Trump’s and the Republican Party’s destructive agenda and to not only use their words but their votes to halt these efforts, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that copies of this resolution be sent to the California Congressional Delegation.
