Principles of Unity
Participation is non-sectarian and all-inclusive to all who agree with the campaign’s Statement of Purpose and Principles of Unity. The campaign will be grassroots and independent of the mainstream political party machines, police groups, law enforcement and affiliations, i.e. P.B.A.
The campaign will promote the involvement and leadership of those communities most affected by police violence: Blacks, Latinos and other people of color, immigrants, women, queer and trans people, youth, political/radical activists and all poor and oppressed people. The campaign will encourage respectful and full democratic discussion and will decide policy and direction by majority vote. Minority votes of the campaign will be acknowledged internally, but publicly campaign participants will support the majority’s decisions.
All political points of view will be respected, and campaign participants will have the right to express their individual positions, slogans and distribute literature during the campaign.
