Statement of Purpose
Our purpose is to promote a consciousness shift toward our comprehensive interconnectedness as we affirm our identity in ethical culture. We celebrate the transcendent possibility in ethical culture through the practice of ethical behavior and joyful engagement in community life. We see ourselves as change agents who connect with the emerging collective determined to bring about the evolution of consciousness. We dedicate ourselves to promoting and enhancing the highest principles at the United Nations, the AEU Federation and the Culture of Peace worldwide. We support all humanitarian work that is based in reciprocity and mutuality. We understand humanitarian work as vital not only to the relief of suffering but as essential to building a peaceful world.
We see our role at the United Nations as advocates for emergent holistic systems such as peace building, universality in human and earth rights, pluralism based in transparency and accountability and the affirmation of the Global Commons. While, originally, the UN was founded upon the sovereignty of nation states, we now believe that nation states in order to assert their true sovereignty, must cooperate with one another more effectively. They can do more to promote economic and cultural diversity, to promote trust and alliances of civilization. We advocate for our country to adopt and implement those international instruments both binding and non-binding necessary to promote world peace. It is time to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the International Criminal Court, Convention to Eliminate Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), and to adhere to the legal and spirit of all Resolutions.
