Democrats embrace tribal sovereignty in platform for convention

 


Democrats are poised to support Indian Country on sovereignty, health, justice and other issues as they hammer out their party's platform.

Party leaders and representatives are meeting in Orlando, Florida, on Friday and Saturday to finalize the document. Already, they are calling the process that was used to develop the platform one of the most representative in their history.

"Reflecting the values of our party, the drafting process was open and inclusive, with a series of public hearings where diverse voices and constituencies had an opportunity to provide input and make their points of view known," Rep. Barbara Lee (D-California) said in a statement.
