PROCLAMATION ISSUED ON JULY FOURTH FOR TOLERANCE
AND EQUALITY IN THESE UNITED STATES
[AMERICAN DECLARATION OF
TOLERANCE and EQUALITY
Ceorce Cordon Battle, W. Warrf.n Barbour
»nd William Allen W hite
THIS has ever been a free country. It was founded by men
and women who fled from persecution and oppression; it
\ was founded upon religions liberty and human equality.
The signers of the Declaration of Independence built their hopes
for America on these principles. Succeeding generations have
cherished them. They are the most pvccious heritage of the Ameri
j1 In 1776, these principles were embodied in the Declaration of
Independence. In 1789 they were written into the Constitution
and into the Bill of Rights; George IFashington, as the first presi
dent of the'United Slates, swore to defend them; Abraham Lin
coln upheld them in the Emancipation Proclamation.
Today these principles of freedom for all are threatened. Our
•'American institutions are attacked by those who would destroy
liberty through bigotry. They assail the equal justice guaranteed
by our Constitution and seek to set race against race, creed
Now, therefore, on this Fourth day of July, 1939, we Americans,
assembled throughout the United States, again take the oath of
our forefathers. Descended from those who came from all lands
i to lit t here i* peace and brotherhood, we who together have made
America great, repudiate all doctrines of inequality, and condemn
intolerance in every form. IFe reaffirm our devoted loyally to the
basic principle of the Declaration of Independence, that all men
are created equal, and in defense of this we, as did the founders
of these United States of America, mutually pledge to each other
OUT lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
