The Amendment process is now closed. Any member or group of DSA members in good standing could submit Amendments to proposals between Tuesday, May 9 and Wednesday, June 28 using the 2023 DSA Convention Amendment Submission Form. The deadline to submit Amendments was June 28 at 11:59 pm PT.
Amendments to Consensus Resolutions will likely be prioritized on the final agenda for Convention. For the sake of simplicity and political clarity, the Platform & Resolutions Committee has contacted authors of several proposals from the first Compendium to encourage them to turn their Resolutions into Amendments to Consensus Resolutions or to combine their Resolutions if they are both about similar topics. If you are interested in amending a proposal, please reach out to the proposal authors to learn whether or not they are planning to change their proposal. You can also email [email protected] to be put in touch with the proposal authors.
To be considered for debate at the Convention, Amendments were required to have a minimum of 300 signatures of support from DSA members who are in good standing as of February 20, 2023. For more details about submitting amendments, please review the 2023 Convention Rules.
We recommend using a form for collecting signatures and requiring the following fields: name, DSA membership email, and DSA chapter. These items are all required when submitting the final list of signatures.
You can email [email protected] at any time if you have any questions.
