Our Vision Statement

Our Values and Principles
Dignity: We all deserve to have our human dignity and fundamental rights respected.
We respect the dignity of all persons.
– We advocate for laws and policies that prohibit discrimination against all who experience oppression.
– We oppose the use of racial profiling and other discriminatory practices by immigration enforcement and law enforcement.
– Because derogatory language dehumanizes people and facilitates abuse of human rights, we advocate for an end to terms such as “aliens,” “criminals,” illegal immigrant,” and “illegals.” We advocate for respectful language that honors our shared humanity and builds community.
