2021 Party Platform

Our Party Platform is a statement of our shared values.

Every four years, thousands of Democrats discuss and vote on an updated platform at the state convention, and many more offer testimony at the platform hearings and meetings that take place in the months prior.


This year’s Platform Convention will take place on September 25, 2021 at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell. Throughout the summer, the 2021 Platform Chairs and Committee will be soliciting testimony from Democrats about what they would like to see in the 2021 Party Platform.

Registered Massachusetts Democrats may submit written testimony, attend a MassDems Platform Hearing, or find or schedule a platform meeting with a local Democratic committee, community building group, or issue advocacy organization.
