The national and state Democratic Party Platforms are position statements that guide the party on key issues from climate change, to gun safety, to racial justice, and to jobs.

In 2016, the national Democratic Party adopted the most progressive and compressive platform describing the ideas and values Democrats across our country hold.

The Nebraska Democratic Party Platform, the Foundation Statement, and the Permanent Policy Positions File are, in combination, the statement of beliefs that the State Party has adopted as a basis for guiding its actions. They have been adopted by a majority of delegates to the State Convention, and remain in force until the next State Convention.

Resolutions are discussed and voted on at our NDP meetings held four times a year and at our state convention once every two years. Resolutions are statements on current topics and issues.

We place all resolutions that did pass the NDP State Central Committee and the proposed resolutions that did not pass into a google drive. The resolutions are organized by “passed” and “proposed.”
