ABOUT THE PROJECT

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:

  1. Members of a family accept a degree of obligation to provide care for one another.
  2. Members of a family understand their connection to be lasting, not fleeting.
  3. Members of a family do have the right to separate themselves from that family despite the first two assumptions.
  4. Members of a family understand themselves to be members.
