CSCL believes in a community that welcomes and includes everyone; and supports the universal rights we all share.
The right to live, work and play in our communities; the right to dignity & respect; the right to have personal & individual values; the right to privacy; and the right to make our own choices within the law. In many ways, these rights have created the communities where we live and have become the foundation of our society.
True opportunity requires that we all have equal access to the benefits, burdens and responsibilities of our society regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, ability/disability, or other aspects of what we look like or where we come from.
