The following is an excerpt from the WSDC 2022 Platform, approved June 25, 2022:
The inherent dignity and equal and inalienable rights of all human beings are foundations of freedom, justice, and peace. Our democracy rests on the rights and responsibilities set forth in the United States Constitution, the International Bill of Human Rights, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, and the Washington State Constitution. We are a nation of diverse cultures. Immigrants strengthen the United States of America. All immigrants should be afforded full human rights and a fair, safe, and timely path to legal status or citizenship. We believe that safe, quality, and physically accessible affordable housing is a basic human right, and the foundation for success in life, education, and employment. We affirm the importance of culturally diverse expression through art and recognize the essential power of art in building bridges among human beings. We commit to expanding access for all people to all forms of art in order to preserve cultural diversity, encourage free expression, and promote community building.
