America's strength derives from collective action for the common good. Our vision includes a plan for communities that are environmentally clean, energy efficient, well educated, healthy, economically strong, and secure. We will promote energy self-sufficiency and renewable energy to counter global warming and pollution, and protect our natural resources. Our economy must be built on a diverse workforce educated in quality public schools. We believe in universal, comprehensive, and affordable health care.
We believe in the fundamental equality of all persons and devote ourselves to the defense of their inherent dignity, collectively and individually. We believe that justice for all minority groups and the rights of women require constant vigilance and a thorough examination of laws that disproportionately impact minorities and women. Our state and our nation must respect the rights to freedom of expression, assembly, and marriage for all its residents.
