Tierra Village's Version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

All persons have equal dignity. Dignity does not depend upon physical, intellectual or other characteristics.   Neither does it depend upon the opinions that other people have about these characteristics.

All persons have inherent and equal worth. Our value as persons is neither earned nor accumulated.   It is unrelated to health status or any genetic or other personal characteristic.

All persons have inherent capacity for growth and expression. Every person has the right to be nourished physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually.

All persons are entitled to equal access and opportunity. Equality demands protection from all forms of discrimination or harm, and access to the supports necessary to enable equal participation.
