2016 Democratic Platform
The Democratic Party believes in empowering the people of our nation and champions the values of inclusion an opportunity.
We believe in reforming our criminal justice system, gun safety, and good-paying jobs for our people.This includes increasing the minimum wage, the right to form and join a union, and our commitment to public education.
The Democratic Party, for the first time, has come out for the abolition of the death penalty as cruel and unusual punishment, and stands for an end to the era of mass incarceration.
The Democratic Party is committed to the protection of women's reproductive rights, the pursuit of universal health care, the expansion of Social Security, and fighting for comprehensive immigration reform with the goal of keeping families together, providing legal counsel for unaccompanied minors, and ending private detention centers.
The Democratic Party calls for the reform of Wall Street, and for breaking up financial entities so that never again is being "too big to fail" an excuse for inaction. Trade should not put corporate profit ahead of workers' rights, labor standards, or public health.
And, finally, the Democratic Party recognizes the urgency of clean energy and the reality of climate change and is dedicated to making our country run on clean energy.
