Public School Integration

General Resolution

WHEREAS, denial of equal opportunities for education on account of race or color continues to be widespread seven years after the Supreme Court's unanimous declaration that the Constitution forbids it; and

WHEREAS, such disregard for the supreme law of the land presents a moral crisis no less than that resulting from the violation of human rights involved;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the Unitarian Universalist Association commends the President of the United States for public statements already made and urges his continued appropriate action to clarify the moral issues and to enlist active public support for their resolution by prompt integration of the public schools at all levels; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That this Assembly call upon the federal courts to implement the Supreme Court decision with speed and firmness.
