OUR VALUES

Interfaith

 

FAITH - We celebrate joy in the religious diversity and expression in Houston. We reject discrimination of individuals and/or communities of faith.

 

HOPE - We celebrate a future where faith communities in solidarity with one another provide hope for a better Houston free from violence and division.

 

HUMANITY - We celebrate commitment that our faith traditions call us to compassion and obligation to our neighbor.

 

FAITH, HOPE, and HUMANITY require us to foster healthy partnerships among faith communities and healthy separation and partnerships between church and state for the common good.

 
Justice

In order to build one from many (e pluribus unum) we advocate:

 

ECONOMIC JUSTICE - We resist a culture of economic exclusion. There is enough for all.

 

BODY JUSTICE - We believe every person should be able to live fully in the body they have or choose without harm or discrimination based on race or any other separating factors.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE - We confront the full costs to people and our planet of our practices.

 

CIVIC JUSTICE - We guard the rights of citizenship including voting, public education, and restorative justice.
