“We must become blind in order to truly see the beauty that is humanity. Blind to color, blind to religious preference. blind to gender. Then and only then we will be able to see. One’s race, color, creed, national origin, religious preference, sexual orientation or gender in no way lowers, or elevates one’s worth. We are all of equal value, all precious beings.”
Our belief is simple: All Lives do matter….
Our objective is to promote & encourage Understanding, Tolerance and Acceptance with the goal of a peaceful coexistence (Unity) for all Americans.
One would think this to be a “No-Brainer”, a simple task that goes without saying. Oh, I so wish that were the case. Unfortunately, the country seems to be going in the opposite direction.
Our founding Principles:
Principle 1: Understanding
This Association beliefs, supports and promotes the belief that all humans regardless of Race, Gender, Age, Sexual Orientation, Religious Preference or any other defining trait are in fact precious being of equal worth. None are above (more valued), nor below (less valued) in anyway shape or form.
Principle 2: Tolerance
This Association believes that all individuals have the right to exist (tolerated) freely without fear of violence, discrimination or hate regardless of Race, Gender, Age, Sexual Orientation, Religious Preference or any other defining trait. We acknowledge that tolerance does not equate to condoning or approval.
Principle 3: Acceptance
This Association believes that all people regardless of Race, Gender, Age, Sexual Orientation, Religious Preference or any other defining trait should be accepted as they are, as they choose to live, free from ridicule, violence, or discrimination in a peaceful and harmonious fashion. That each of us are in our own was unique, and that no one should never be forced to change based on the beliefs of others.
Principle 4: Unity
This Association believes that all people regardless of Race, Gender, Age, Sexual Orientation, Religious Preference or any other defining trait have the right to, and can peacefully coexist, free from trait based violence or discrimination,as one forming “One People, One Voice”.
Though it will take work, lots and lots of work, we can overcome these rifts that are fracturing our country, our cities, our families, our lives and the future that we all try to better for our children. We must strive for a better, safer, stronger future for those that will follow us…. If nothing else we must do this for our children!
