2005-02: AEBC Non-discrimination policy

Whereas, The Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians supports the enactment and enforcement of policies and programs that will advance the development of human rights both within and outside of Canada; and

Whereas, The Board of the AEBC believes it is important that we also practice the advancement of human rights principles within our own organization;

Therefore, be it resolved that the membership of the AEBC ratify the following as the AEBC's Non-Discrimination policy which was developed by the NFB:AE Board of Directors:

"POLICY on NON-DISCRIMINATION The National Federation of the Blind: Advocates for Equality (NFB:AE) believes in the rights of all persons to dignity and respect and affirms its belief that the diversity of our country is a source of social, cultural and economic enrichment and strength. It will not practice any form of discrimination and will protect the right of all persons to be free of hate activity."
