Convention Debate


The deadline for propsing changes to the DSA Constitution or Bylaws and for submitting resolutions to be debated at the Convention is now closed.

The National Resolutions & Amendments Committee is working with authors of debate proposals to finalize their documents and will post a document here containing all debate proposals by June 23rd. The National Office is also working on a report, similar to those issued by the Congressional Budget Office, with information on the financial implications of every proposal.

Members will be able to submit amendments to debate proposals between June 23rd-July 19th. Check back here for a submissions form once the initial list of debate proposals is released.


The Resolutions & Amendments Committee will poll delegates in early July to determine which debate topics are a high priority for the Convention agenda and to identify uncontroversial items that can be added to a “consent calendar” (i.e. a document with multiple proposals that is put to an up or down vote).
