All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
It unites men and women, young and old, gay and straight, native-born and immigrant, urban and rural. We apply the scientific outlook developed by Marx, Engels, Lenin and others in the context of U.
The need for the Communist Party is as great as ever.
Capitalism has cast billions of people around the world into poverty. It afflicts humanity with endless wars. Capitalism pits worker against worker in a global race to the bottom. Capitalism treats people and nature as disposable commodities in order to transfer the wealth of the planet to a handful of multi-billionaires.
Our bedrock principles include the leading role of the working class in the struggle for social change; that working class unity is essential, and the fight against racism and for immigrant rights are essential to build that unity.
In solidarity with working people around the world, we stand in opposition to U. Our organizational practices are based on democracy, equality, unity of action and transparency.
We do not set ourselves apart from the rest of the working class movement and organizations; we have no private agenda, no special interests. We welcome all who share our goals to join us or work together in alliance. With pride in our past, and with confidence in our working class and its future, we hereby establish the Constitution of the Communist Party of the United States.
In the Communist Party, all decisions are arrived at through democratic procedures, emphasizing the maximum input from members. Unity is the strongest weapon working people have in the struggle to advance their interests. By making a commitment to unite around a program of action, members strengthen the Party and help unify the working class and peoples movements.
Collectivity is the basic style of work of the Party. Through group discussion and action, we seek to develop and apply the best possible plans to advance the interests of working people. The principles outlined in this article are used in practice by many peoples organizations to foster democratic decision-making and unity in action.
Historically, these principles have been known as democratic centralism. The National Convention is the leading body of the Party. It elects a National Committee to function between conventions.
Districts and clubs shall act in accord with the decisions and policies of the National Convention and National Committee.
Decisions in all Party bodies are arrived at by majority vote or by consensus at club and district meetings unless anyone requests a vote. Decisions of leading committees on major questions shall be reported to all other Party bodies.
Clubs and districts shall keep national leadership informed of their activities.
Any member disagreeing with a decision of a Party body may appeal the decision to the next higher body. Appeals may be made to successive leading committees. Members who disagree with a decision are expected to refrain from organizing against or publicly undermining the decision, including during the appeal process.
The election of officers and leading committees at all levels shall be carried out with the fullest participation of the members of the Party bodies. Elections shall be based on a review and evaluation of the work of the elected body and of the individuals proposed for office.
In elections to all Party committees, conventions and conferences, steps shall be taken to maximize the representation of workers, youth, people of color and women. Officers and leading committees are responsible both to the bodies which elected them and to the higher leading committees.
All officers and members of leading committees may be released or removed from office by a two-thirds vote of the committees to which they are responsible. The Communist Party warmly welcomes all who support our program to apply for membership.
We welcome all equally, regardless of race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender or religious belief. All members must be 18 years of age or older and currently living in the United States.
Clubs or districts may admit members under 18 in exceptional circumstances. The application shall be promptly referred to the appropriate club or district committee which will respond to the applicant as soon as possible.
All applications shall be accepted unless the club, district or national leadership has information that the application was false or that admitting the applicant would be harmful to the Party organization and its goals.
Upon acceptance, applicants shall be promptly notified that they have been admitted to Party membership and they shall be referred to a Party club or collective to work with where possible.
For applicants from areas where no organization is in place, the National Committee shall set up appropriate forms for welcoming and incorporating new members. Membership in the Communist Party is completely voluntary.
Party members shall to the best of their ability support the goals of the organization through implementing its program, paying dues and supporting its associated publications.Located on the upper level of the National Archives museum, is the permanent home of the original Declaration of Independence, Constitution of the United States, and Bill of Rights.
