Inclusive Statement

Our coalition seeks to build power for all people. We recognize that history, the economic system, unequal opportunities, and physical/mental abilities have created a non-level field. In all of our activities, internal and external, we will make a priority of the needs of those who are disadvantaged by the system. Our coalition will not exclude anyone based on: race; social or economic status, national origin, sexuality, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, religious belief, or lack thereof, citizenship, or criminal record, including incarceration.
