Democratic National Committee, 2020
Position papers will be due before 11:59 PM on October 17, 2019.
Submission instructions will be sent out prior to the deadline.
The Democratic National Committee is the formal body governing the Democratic political party of the United States. The DNC was created in 1848, and has the primary responsibilities of planning the party’s Presidential nomination and the Democratic National Convention, promoting the Democratic party’s platform, raising money, and generally coordinating support for the party. Coming off a turbulent Republican presidency under Donald Trump, and nearing the end of a race with many viable contenders to oppose the incumbents, the Democratic party has been faced with internal challenges and divisions like they had never seen before. In this committee, delegates will be responsible for healing these wounds, choosing a party nominee, and leading the party to new heights in uncharted waters.
