• We, citizens of Concord and Carlisle, dedicated to the belief that all persons are entitled to a sense of dignity and an ingrained respect for individuals as human beings, have gathered to form a Concord-Carlisle Human Rights Council
  • Its purpose will be to foster good will, cooperation, understanding, conciliation, and to work toward personal and community enrichment, so that no individual rights are abridged.
  • This must not only be the place where it all began, but also where it all continues, where the flame of democracy burns with a special brightness.
  • We declare it to be the solemn duty of all our citizens to nurture in our children and ourselves the precious openness of heart that is the source of all understanding.
  • We will work to help the organizations and institutions of our communities reflect a spirit of cooperation and good will in their policies and programs.
  • We pledge ourselves to live and work toward the spirit of neighborliness upon which our communities were first founded.
