The Campaign for Equal Dignity is galvanizing people who believe in human rights to demand equal dignity for all.
Anger and despair are gripping our country. There is deep mistrust of society’s civil institutions. We face a moment when black men and women are murdered by vigilantes and law enforcement; our government is slow to respond to a global pandemic; and sky-high unemployment is affecting communities of color, poor people, immigrants, LGBTQ communities and the elderly hardest. Our democracy is broken. Real and meaningful structural change is required to fix it.
We recognize that in order to bridge the division and ensure equal dignity, “we the people” need to create change. This campaign will provide resources and education programming to our communities, amplify the work of advocates working to protect rights and dismantle structural racism, and highlight ways to strategize, organize and mobilize.
The division and inequities in our country won’t be solved overnight. But these problems won’t be solved at all unless we act together to save our democracy — by practicing it — and demand a government that respects the inalienable rights and dignity of all members of the human family.
