Your voice is needed to ensure that the California Democratic Party Platform represents our values and priorities as Democrats. Many of you submitted testimony to the 2022 Platform Committee before last year’s deadline, asking that language on the Middle East continue to recognize Israel’s future as a secure and democratic Jewish state alongside a sovereign Palestinian state, with dignity and security for all.
Despite having multiple opportunities to provide oral and written testimony, anti-Israel activists are mobilizing to include platform language that supports a unilateral Palestinian right of return to Israel, removes the word “Jewish” in describing Israel as a “Jewish and democratic state”, and more. However, the fact is that the overwhelming majority of feedback about the platform was to keep the language as it is.
Together, we will let state party leaders know that focusing an inordinate amount of time on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict does not represent the will of California voters, bring peace, or help solve the conflict.
Thank you for signing! We will keep you posted on any developments.
