Human Rights

Issues

Anti Harassment protections and anti discrimination laws are a vital government function. Harassment or discrimination due to race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, language, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability cannot be tolerated.

We must understand that crafting legislation for protections against harassment and discrimination is difficult and complex, political campaign platitudes is no way to govern. The rights of the accused must also be protected. We have seen cases where states have enacted laws that are abusive to the rights of the accused.

Marital protections under the law apply equally to same sex couples.

Women’s rights are human rights. Women’s rights and Transgender rights are in conflict in the area of Women’s sports. We believe that allowing unelected bureaucrats to decide this complex issue is not appropriate. The Center Party wants to let the people decide what is right, and therefore we should have a state-wide referendum to decide whether Transgender athletes should be allowed to participate in Women’s competitive sports.
