Four Lakes Green Party Statement of Solidarity with Green Party Lavender Caucus

The Four Lakes Green Party chapter of the Wisconsin Green Party passed the following statement on June 17, 2020:

In matters of identity, the Green Party takes its lead from the caucuses as experts of their own lived and collective experience. The National Lavender Green Caucus has told us that the “Declaration on Women’s Sex-Based Rights” is "a document intended to deny trans people their bodily autonomy and freedom of expression." AND "The National Women’s Caucus affirms our support of the Green Party platform section concerning Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. We support our colleagues in the Lavender Caucus in achieving and defending these rights. Our caucus policy is that transgender women are women. We do not support the division and oppression of one oppressed group by further oppressing another."
The Four Lakes Green Party stands with the caucuses and other committees of the Green Party of the United States in affirming our support for all women and rejecting oppression.

    I thought there was supposed to be a clause in this statement that says that we don’t support the Georgia Green Party being expelled from the party even though we support the Lavender Caucus and trans rights. Did I miss something?
