31st National Convention: Report on the new CPUSA National Committee

BY:Communist Party USA| July 23, 2019

Among its other duties, each National Convention elects a National Committee to lead the party until the next convention.   As committed fighters for equality, we strive for a leadership that reflects the diversity of the U.S. working class and recognizes the contributions of women, people of color, and other oppressed groups.

Of the 71 members of the new National Committee:

28 are women;

14 are African-American;

14 are Latinx;

1 is Arab/Muslim;

3 are members of the LGBTQ community.

Renewal and continuity across generations in party leadership are also important considerations.  Of the 71 members  32 are new to the National Committee and 24 are younger than 50 years old.

    The Communist Party USA is a  revolutionary working-class  political party 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.
