Equality should NOT need to be overtly stated. Equality should just be a concept that everyone understands, without question. However, looking at the state of our country, the more voices that condemn acts of inequality may help make a difference.
Decisions on how you treat someone should not be made on the basis of gender, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. Decisions on how you treat someone should be based on how they treat you. It’s the most basic teaching everyone learns as a child.
Regardless of who you are, as long as you are kind, we welcome you.
