This Association of members hereby declares that our main objective is to maintain and improve the civil rights, constitutional guarantees, and political freedom for every member and citizen of the United States of America. We believe that the Constitution of the United States is one of the best documents ever devised by man, and signers of the Declaration of Independence did so out of love for their country.
We believe that the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America guarantees our members free speech, petition, assembly, and the right to gather together for the lawful purpose of advising and helping one another in asserting our rights under the Federal and State Constitutions and Statutes. We also declare the basic right of all of our members to select spokesmen from our number who could be expected to give wisest counsel and advise concerning the need for legal assistance.
IT IS HEREBY Declared that we are exercising our right of "freedom of association" as guaranteed by the 1st and 14th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution and equivalent provisions of the various State Constitutions. This means that our association activities are restricted to the private domain only.
The Association will limit its efforts in furthering these goals to use of the established judicial institutions, and procedures that have been established by common law, the United States Constitution and legislative actions by the Congress of the United States and the legislatures of its States.
The Association will recognize any person (irrespective of race, color and/.or religion) who is in accordance with these principles and policies as a member, and will provide a medium through which its individual members seek to make more effective the expression of their own views.
More specifically, our purpose is to educate and assist members in solving their legal concerns and problems as a preventative measure or as a solution to a present situation or condition through research, providing information and education, or directing the member to the proper resource.
