What We Believe

“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything”
-Malcolm X

We believe in celebrating diversity and pluralism by engaging all Americans in the political process.

We believe that the American promise of liberty and justice thrives best on the talent and wisdom that comes from the cultural variety of all of our citizens.

We believe that those holding governmental power should be as diverse as the people they represent.

We believe that to foster peaceful coexistence and harmony, the government should maintain separation of church and state, balance of powers, and checks & balances.

We believe in the ardent defense of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights because we hold our essential liberties of freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, and the right to petition the government in the highest esteem.

We believe that the American Dream is not only economic success but also civic engagement and empowerment within a democracy.

We believe that America is stronger when everyone has a seat at the table and when all voices are heard, regardless of whether they are conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat.

We believe that an inclusive government empowers those disenfranchised minorities who are currently under-represented in the political process.

We believe that minorities and people of color should feel safe and protected under the law to actively express their opinions as well as participate and petition all levels of government, from the local school board to the Oval Office.

We believe that civil engagement is a responsibility of citizenship and that all Americans must be involved in creating a bright future for our great nation.

We believe that minorities and people of color are not powerless individuals who must be ushered into the political process by others, but that they can independently become vibrant and compelling members of all levels of government.
