MB Dems pass resolution against racism

At the September 9th General Meeting, the Morongo Basin Democratic Club unanimously approved the following resolution against racism:

 

Whereas, racism, religious discrimination, homophobia and misogyny are contrary to American values; and,

Whereas, intolerance in all its forms has been shown to be learned behavior; and,

Whereas, it has been shown that racism and hate harm the emotional and physical health of both the victims and perpetrators.

Therefore, be it resolved that the Morongo Basin Democratic Club challenge laws, policies, and traditions that propagate, influence and support racism, bigotry and discrimination.

Be it further resolved that individually we commit ourselves to speaking up and out whenever racism, discrimination, homophobia or misogyny is present.
