TITLE: [[Revision of 10 Key Values for Our Party]] SPONSORS: [[Christopher Dreher, Co-Sponsor: Brian Cady- GRP Treasurer]] VETTING COMMITTEES: [[Communications Committee, Membership Committee, AdCom]] FLOOR MANAGER: [[Christopher Dreher]] SHEPHERD: Christopher Dreher SUMMARY: [[Changing Wording of GRP 10 Key Values 1. Grassroots Democracy Subtopic]] BACKGROUND: [[ The current wording of the GRP 10 Key Values 1. Grassroots Democracy Subtopic reads: “Every human being deserves a say in the decisions that affect his or her life; no one should be subject to the will of another. Therefore we will work to increase public participation at every level of government and to ensure that our public representatives are fully accountable to the people who elect them. We will also work to create new types of political organizations that expand the process of participatory democracy by directly including citizens in the decision-making process.” I suggest revising this wording to give the first sentence a rework/update that will draw more support.]] TEXT OF PROPOSAL: [[ I suggest a revision of the first paragraph primarily, as it focuses an implicit discussion of all human rights to a fair governance, yet “his or her” excludes many people whom identify as gender non-binary. - A suggested revision: All people deserve valued participation in the decisions enacted in their lives; everyone should be granted egalitarian rights, liberties, and responsibilities, enabling fair activities in civics. Also, grammar changes such as “Therefore (,-insert comma) we will work to increase public participation at every level of government and to ensure that our public representatives are fully accountable to the people who elect them.”]] IMPLEMENTATION: [[Communications Committee, Membership Committee, AdCom]] FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS: [[ None]] REFERENCES AND ATTACHMENTS: [[ http://www.green-rainbow.org/10_key_values https://www.gp.org/ten_key_values_2016 ]]
