31st National Convention: Discussion Notes

Our National Convention featured three workshops of the whole as well as a variety of breakout sessions. The workshops of the whole were plenary sessions devoted to discussion of broad strategic priorities for the coming period.  Each one was framed around a special resolution (Resolutions 1-3) and included a panel presentation followed by discussion of how to implement the strategy.  Each Digest below includes the notes from table discussion during a workshop of the whole.  Notes from breakout sessions are grouped together in a single document.  All can be viewed and downloaded with the links below.

    The Communist Party USA is a working class organization founded in 1919 in Chicago, IL.

    The Communist Party stands for the interests of the American working class and the American people. It stands for our interests in both the present and the future. Solidarity with workers of other countries is also part of our work. We work in coalition with the labor movement, the peace movement, the student movement, organizations fighting for equality and social justice, the environmental movement, immigrants rights groups and the health care for all campaign.

    But to win a better life for working families, we believe that we must go further. We believe that the American people can replace capitalism with a system that puts people before profit — socialism.

    We are rooted in our country's revolutionary history and its struggles for democracy. We call for "Bill of Rights" socialism, guaranteeing full individual freedoms.
