We urge assemblies nationwide to deliberate on reforms that can
open our system of government to the people and put people before parties. We urge states and localities to implement reforms.
Editor's note/correction: The following proposal was written and proposed by the Politics and Electoral Reform group at Occupy Wall Street.
This proposal was developed by the Politics and Electoral Reform group at Occupy Wall Street between September and November 2011. It contains input from well over 100 individuals who attended group meetings in Liberty Plaza as well as many others from across the country who influenced the proposal through online discussions. The document was produced through a collaborative writing process. It was approved by the Politics and Electoral Reform group with full consensus support on November 6, 2011.
