I believe in equality and parity for all people.

Throughout the world many people still face discrimination and prejudice today. People are denied the most basic of privileges such as education and marriage because of the color their skin, height, religion, sexual orientation, ect.

I believe in equality and nondiscrimination for all people.

People should not be judged by extraneous factors they cannot control. We are all brought into this world unique, as individuals, and as creatures with natural diversity. We should celebrate this diversity, in a positive way, taking part in cultures other than our own, learning about each other, and promoting understanding.

With this understanding, we must build bridges across countries, across cultures, and within our own society. We must take this understanding and further it by appreciating our differences and also acknowledging our common human ground.

I believe in equality for all people.
