Draft GPUS Platform Amendment Social Justice Chapter Introduction
The United States is nation of great riches and many dreams, but we are plagued by social injustices that keep us from becoming a great nation and a beacon to the rest of the world.
We have far more billionaires than any other nation, but millions of Americans regularly go hungry.
We have so many of the best schools and universities in the world, but we consign millions of children to schools that lack the most basic resources.
We possess a tremendous expanse of land, yet we have placed so many of our poor and people of color in our most polluted areas.
After more than more than four hundred years, we still are marred by hatred, discrimination and prejudice.
We Greens are not satisfied.
Greens believe that the heart of social justice is the fair distribution of resources, and ensuring that all people have what they need to grow and flourish.
Our nation is blessed with great ethnic and cultural diversity. Greens are proud of this diversity, and we celebrate it.
Greens oppose discrimination and prejudice of all kinds. We believe in equal rights for all, regardless of race, gender, religion, age, class, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation, disability, wealth or health.
We think that social justice brings peace, and that our nation will never enjoy real peace without social justice.
