Independence and pursuits of international justice; and

racial discrimination; education, social, and cultural rights; civil and
political rights; and discrimination in education.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That our government exert special leadership in
support of world-wide human rights by urging other nations to ratify the
conventions and covenants and by aiding all efforts to strengthen the United
Nations Human Rights Commission.
