WHEREAS Congress possesses the right of investigation on matters on which it can properly legislate; but
WHEREAS the House un-American Activities Committee's mandate "to investigate 'un-American propaganda'" contravenes First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and association; and
WHEREAS the Committee's operation, especially its hearings, have relied heavily on expose methods that result in severe pressures on freedom of speech and association and deprivation of due process of law;
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that the American Ethical Union, meeting in Washington, D.C., this 2nd day of May 1964, calls for the abolition of the House Committee on un-American Activities.
