SOS advocates for a society where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. SOS does not condone or approve the use of slurs related to racial, ethnic, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, physical or mental challenges. Nor do we tolerate racially, ethnically or other forms of offensive language under any circumstance.

As an organization dedicated to equitable, fair and respectful treatment of all members of society, we oppose any language or action that undermines our democratic principles or threatens the unity of our movement. SOS will continue to identify and fight the injustice of institutional racism wherever it emerges

We also strongly oppose biased and damaging reporting by the media that seeks to discredit and marginalize the growing resistance to corporate education reform.
