Zero Tolerance For Discrimination
Considering that we fully believe in universally accepted ethos that recognize the dignity and equality inherent in all human beings,
We agree and accept the universal declaration of human rights, which proclaims that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights and that everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set out therein, without discrimination of any kind,
We agree and accept that discrimination between human beings on the grounds of race, color, or ethnic origin is an obstacle to friendly and peaceful relations among nations and is capable of disturbing peace, and security among peoples and the harmony of persons living side by side even within one and the same state,
We agree and accept that discrimination constitutes an action or decision that treats a person negatively for reasons such as their race, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, a conviction for which a pardon has been granted or a record suspended.
