Civil Rights and Equal Rights

The foundation of any democratic society is the guarantee that each member of society has equal rights. Respect for our constitutionally protected rights is our best defense against discrimination and the abuse of power. There is an intimate connection between our rights as individuals and our responsibilities to our neighbors and the planet.

We should strive to secure universal and effective recognition and observance of the principles and spirit expressed in the United National Universal Declaration of Human Rights as an international standard that all nations must meet.

Important should be our respect for diversity. We must be committed to establishing relationships:

That honor diversity.
That support the self-definition and self-determination of all people
That consciously confront the barriers of racism, sexism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, class oppression, ageism, and ableism.
That confronts the many ways that our culture and laws separate us from working together.

We should support affirmative action to remedy discrimination, to protect constitutional rights, and to provide equal opportunity under the law.
