Inclusive Family Policies
Endorsing principles of inclusion in family policy
Whereas, all families with children are engaged in the same essential task of raising children; and
Whereas, families care for their children in diverse ways and parents change their choices regarding paid work and the care of their children as their families’ needs change; and
Whereas, reliable data shows that about one in five parents is at-home and surveys of parents show that many who are currently employed would prefer to spend more time with their children; and
Whereas, family policies crafted to support only “working families” often discriminate by applying only to certain families; and
Whereas, government policies crafted in accordance with principles of inclusion do not discriminate based on the ways in which families earn income and/or care for their children; therefore
Resolved, that ______________________________________________ supports the adoption
[name of person / governing body / organization/business]
of principles of inclusion in family policies.
