Values Statement

May First/People Link’s core values guide us in implementating our mission and ensure its integrity. We have identified the following values as critical to our work:

  • Cooperation, collaboration, and sharing help us contribute to a movement broader than ourselves

  • Transparency, openness, and honesty ensure that we are building a democratic organization

  • Equality and respect guide us in building with the diversity of people we need to make a difference

  • Conviction and discipline provide the strength to continue against overwhelming odds

  • Solidarity, mutual aid, and sustainability to ensure we are building new ways to work together

  • Humility, openness to criticism and commitment to conflict resolution create a culture of resilience for our organization and movements

Approved by the membership in November 2015 as part of our official documents.
