Personal Security

WHEREAS we are appalled at the terror and violence in certain regions of our nation, designed to induce massive resistance to civil rights, freedom and equality of all citizens, and

WHEREAS some local law enforcement authorities are unwilling or unable to ensure the safety of citizens engaged in civil rights activities,

BE IT RESOLVED that this 48th General Assembly of the UAHC joins with the many religious, civic and minority groups in the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights in urging the United States Congress to enact legislation which would define assault or murder with a racial purpose or effect as a federal crime.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we appeal to President Johnson, who has provided powerful leadership in the struggle for racial justice, to make such legislation high priority in his administration.
