ALBA Women & Equalities Policy โฌ‡๏ธ

"The ALBA party recognises that by dint of birth and happenstance, we are not all created nor do we live our lives as equals.
๐Ÿ“ "Scotlandโ€™s history involves multiple injustices where chance or privilege have dictated outcomes. Those days should by now be past. This modern world we inhabit can surely arrange to cater for all without loss to any.
๐Ÿ“ "The Scotland ALBA strives to create, envisions a level playing field where we can become truly equal to each other and where everyoneโ€™s rights are respected and protected, but, vitally, not at the cost of others.
