VALUES

OUR

TurnUp is a super-power for social justice changemakers, enabling you to connect to organizations, events and each other.

 

At TurnUp we believe in the following principles which focus on social justice. To join our platform, you must also respect these values.

Thanks to the Women's March for inspiring these values.

We are against violence in all forms and intend to only support and amplify non-violent protests and actions. 

 

We are against hate in all forms. We support love.

We are stronger when working together.

Human Rights

PEOPLE'S RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS AND HUMAN'S RIGHTS ARE PEOPLE'S RIGHTS.


Gender Justice is Racial Justice and is Economic Justice. We must create a society in which all people of all religions, ethnicities and nationalitities—including Black people, Indigenous people, poor people, immigrant people, disabled people, Jewish people, Muslim people, Latinx people, Asian and Pacific Islander people, lesbian, bi, queer and trans people—are free and able to care for and nurture themselves and their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.




PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE FULL AND HEALTHY LIVES, FREE OF ALL FORMS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST THEIR BODIES.


Gun violence is a vital issue and guns are not how we keep our communities free from violence.




LGBTQIA+ RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS.


It is our obligation to uplift, expand and protect the rights of our gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans, two-spirit or gender non-conforming brothers, sisters and siblings. This includes access to non-judgmental, comprehensive healthcare with no exceptions or limitations; access to name and gender changes on identity documents; full anti- discrimination protections; access to education, employment, housing and benefits; and an end to police and state violence.





Gender Justice

IT IS OUR MORAL IMPERATIVE TO DISMANTLE THE GENDER AND RACIAL INEQUITIES WITHIN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.


The rate of imprisonment has grown faster for people than men, increasing by 700% since 1980, and the majority of people in prison have a child under the age of 18. Incarcerated people also face a high rate of violence and sexual assault. We are committed to ensuring access to gender-responsive programming and dedicated healthcare including substance abuse treatment, mental and maternal health services for people in prison. We believe in the promise of restorative justice and alternatives to incarceration. We are also committed to disrupting the school-to-prison pipeline that prioritizes incarceration over education by systematically funneling our children—particularly children of color, queer and trans youth, foster care children, and girls—into the justice system.




GENDER JUSTICE. WE MUST HAVE THE POWER TO CONTROL OUR BODIES AND BE FREE FROM GENDER NORMS, EXPECTATIONS AND STEREOTYPES.


We must free ourselves and our society from the institution of awarding power, agency and resources disproportionately to masculinity to the exclusion of others.




iCare AND PREVENTION, OR MEDICALLY ACCURATE SEXUALITY EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT.


This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education. We understand that we can only have reproductive justice when reproductive health care is accessible to all people regardless of income, location or education.





Social and Economic Justice

AN ECONOMY POWERED BY TRANSPARENCY, ACCOUNTABILITY, SECURITY AND EQUITY IS NECESSARY.


We believe that creating workforce opportunities that reduces discrimination against people allows economies to thrive. Nations and industries that support and invest in caregiving and basic workplace protections—including benefits like paid family leave, access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, fair pay, vacation time, and healthy work environments—have shown growth and increased capacity.




EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK AND THE RIGHT OF ALL PEOPLE TO BE PAID EQUITABLY.


We must end the pay and hiring discrimination that people, particularly women, people of color, Indigenous people, lesbian, queer and trans people still face each day in our nation, as well as discrimination against workers with disabilities, who can currently legally be paid less than federal minimum wage. Many women have always worked and in our modern labor force; and women are now 50% of all family breadwinners. We stand for the 82% of women who become moms, particularly moms of color, being paid, judged, and treated fairly. Equal pay for equal work will lift families out of poverty and boost our nation’s economy.




ALL WORKERS – INCLUDING DOMESTIC AND FARM WORKERS - MUST HAVE THE RIGHT TO ORGANIZE AND FIGHT FOR A LIVING MINIMUM WAGE, AND THAT UNIONS AND OTHER LABOR ASSOCIATIONS ARE CRITICAL TO A HEALTHY AND THRIVING ECONOMY FOR ALL.


Undocumented and migrant workers must be included in our labor protections, and we stand in full solidarity with the sex workers’ rights movement. We recognize that exploitation for sex and labor in all forms is a violation of human rights.





Racial and Ethnic Justice

​WE’RE FACING A STUDENT LOAN CRISIS -- ONE THAT’S HOLDING BACK OUR ECONOMY AND CRUSHING MILLIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES. WE MUST ADDRESS THIS CRISIS.





EVERY PERSON, EVERY COMMUNITY AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLES IN OUR NATION HAVE THE RIGHT TO CLEAN WATER, CLEAN AIR, AND ACCESS TO AND ENJOYMENT OF PUBLIC LANDS.





EVERY KID IN AMERICA SHOULD HAVE THE SAME ACCESS TO A HIGH-QUALITY PUBLIC EDUCATION.


No matter where they live, the color of their skin, or how much money their parents make.
