WHEREAS the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, since its foundation, has made social justice a matter of priority and concern; and

WHEREAS for many years we have participated with other groups in a mutual effort to achieve goals of decency; and

WHEREAS a human relations agency has been established jointly by the UAHC and the NAACP to promote Jewish/Black cooperation in the spirit of the late Kivie Kaplan,

BE IT, THEREFORE, RESOLVED THAT this Biennial Assembly reaffirms its commitment to the task of social justice in America. We endorse the establishment of the joint UAHC/NAACP Human Relations Agency. We pledge the wholehearted participation of our movement in this agency as well as in other coalitions dedicated to achieving higher levels of decency and social justice for all peoples.
