WHEREAS there is a serious problem of hunger and malnutrition in our country; and
WHEREAS private and government investigations uncovered starvation and severe states of malnutrition believed to be non-existent in technologically advanced and wealthy countries such as ours; and
WHEREAS these conditions are known to have a permanent effect on physical and mental development of the individual; and
WHEREAS the individual states and the federal government have failed to deal with the problem in a humane and ethical manner; and
THEREFORE BE It RESOLVED that the American Ethical Union, Societies, Fellowships and members petition the federal government to subsidize and administer to the needs of its people; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the blight of poverty requires our top priority attention and that any and all monies necessary to eradicate the condition of hunger appropriated in a program started immediately.
