CIVIL & HUMAN RIGHTS

1787 believes deeply in civil rights and personal liberty.

Every adult citizen of the United States should have the freedom to make personal choices for his or her life and be responsible for those decisions.  This belief does not mean that the leadership or any other member of 1787 necessarily approves or disapproves of other people’s choices.

1787 will fight to end discrimination in all forms — including discrimination based on race, sex, ethnicity or national origin, language, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or disability. 

1787 believes that government should not restrict personal relationships.  Sexual orientation, preference, gender or gender identity should not be a factor in issues such as marriage and equal federal rights, child custody, adoption, immigration or military service laws. 

1787 supports the freedom to participate in — or abstain from — any religious activities that do not violate the rights of others. We adamantly oppose any government interaction that either promotes or attacks any specific religion.
