Bethany Hallam started this petition to Allegheny County Democratic Committee

In light of recent events, especially the now-viral video showing a 15th Ward committeeman allegedly physically assaulting and forcibly detaining a young African-American boy in a Greenfield playground, it is important to address the standards to which elected committee members are held. We, the undersigned members of the Allegheny County Democratic Committee (ACDC), are requesting an immediate call for a special convention. 


While aforementioned events are certainly disturbing to us and the community at-large, it is incumbent upon all of us to absorb this as an opportunity to find resolve to improve. 


Our current bylaws have not been updated in over 10 years, while our political climate and society as a whole have changed drastically.

 

In order for any change to happen on the committee level, we understand a quorum of no less than 400 committee members must be met, so we are requesting a full committee meeting be scheduled as soon as possible.


Rest assured we will remain committed to our request for a special convention and anticipate an expedited response.
