Primaries and the 2020 Dem Party Platform

What do you think the party platform should prioritize in 2020?
The primary season sets delegates for the convention in Milwaukee this summer.
We have many candidates, each with proposals on many issues. Some are broad issues and some local to each state's primary voters.
Both the Dems and Gops will vote on a platform. This platform is the official party's ideology and long term goals for the nation.
My interest is how the primaries are going to influence those delegates choices, for the official party platform, when they get to the convention.

What are the issues, that will be the major points of the official Democratic Party Platform that are likely to be approved, and written into the official platform?

Please try to not include reactions to Trump. Trump's actions, etc. Please try to define the issues and why voter's might agree that the Democratic platform provides solutions to those issues.

Example: Wisconsin's Dairy industry was harmed by trade war and now leads the nation in family farm bankruptcies. How this occurred was partially the trade war, but also the state's GOP's legislative actions setup this failure. Corporate farms are polluting Northeast Wisconsin's ground water and the GOP is doing nothing, but offering tax breaks to the corporate farms. The trade wars will not last as long as the water issues in Wisconsin, which is also a problem in every state. Water is both an industrial and health issue and the platform may or may not address this.
