ON CIVIL RIGHTS

41st Council
November, 1950
Cleveland, OH

ON CIVIL RIGHTS

As we who subscribe to the belief in the brotherhood of man, survey the national scene, we note with great regret the discriminations from which many Americans suffer at the hands of their fellow-Americans. Such discriminations because of race, color or creed are a violation of the will of God and of the principle of equal liberty to all so basic to the American philosophy.

Therefore, we reaffirm the resolution adopted by the 40th General Assembly of the UAHC reading as follows: "We endorse the recommendations of the president's commission on civil rights and trust that they will be speedily enacted into law."
