Mission: To secure full rights, respect and recognition for all families by eliminating discrimination based on family structure.
Beliefs: The right to family is a human right that has been acknowledged by the United States since 1948. Family is the most fundamental unit of social organization, but families can take many forms. Families provide the primary care and support for members of society from birth through old age. In order to best support families in this work, societies must recognize the diversity of family forms and treat all as legitimate.
Regardless of form, there are some assumptions that underpin our conception of family:
Sex work refers to a wide range of activity where sexual interaction is explicitly exchanged for something of value.
WSFA firmly believes that human beings possess a fundamental right to develop and express their sexuality.
Sexual Health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well being in relation to sexuality.
Sexuality and faith are two of the most deeply important and deeply personal aspects of human identity.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people are entitled to the realization of the full spectrum of their human rights.
Civil rights are one sub-set of human rights that exist equal to and interdependent with multiple fundamental human rights.
Grounded in the human rights framework, reproductive justice refers to all of the conditions necessary for all people to enjoy reproductive freedom.
Every human being deserves access to medically accurate and inclusive information about sex and sexuality.
