1971 General Resolution

BELIEVING: That the rights of human beings include the rights to minimum income, adequate housing and legal services and dignity in old age; and

BELIEVING: That it is the responsibility of government to secure, protect and defend these rights, and to provide appropriate services to implement them;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: The 1971 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association urges that the United States Government and the Government of Canada:

  1. Provide family income through a program of income maintenance adequate to meet needs for food, clothing and housing; and
  2. Commit whatever resources are necessary to provide a decent home for every American and Canadian family; and
  3. Enact legislation to achieve equity in tenant-landlord relationships, protecting the rights of both tenants and landlords; and
  4. Enlarge legal services for the poor and disenfranchised throughout the United States and Canada, with appropriate funding, without political harassment, manipulation and intimidation
