Chris Lugo on Civil Rights

Green challenger


Affirmative action is instrumental for social equality

Q: Do you support requiring companies to hire more women & minorities?

A: Strongly Support. I support affirmative action and steps to improve access to venues traditionally restricted to women and minorities. I believe that supporting such programs is instrumental in achieving fundamental economic and social equality in our society.

Embrace gays and lesbians in their quest for full rights

Q: Do you support protecting sexual orientation under civil rights laws?

A: Strongly Support. Americans should be proud of our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters. Not only are they citizens of this country, but they also contribute to this experiment in so many ways. Rather than denying them their rights or using this group to gain political advantage, we should be embracing them and supporting them in their quest for the same rights we have already. No human being is lessened by having freedom. Let us give all of our citizens their full rights and live out this bold experiment we call democracy.
