Press Release

Washington, DC — Today, Congresswoman Alma Adams introduced the Inalienable Rights Constitutional Amendment that ensures fundamental rights for every American. 

The Inalienable Rights Constitutional Amendment calls for the recognition of the right to affordable housing, cost-effective healthcare, quality education and adequate nutrition as fundamental rights necessary to creating a society in which every citizen is truly equal. 

"If we are going to fulfill our nation's promise of equal opportunity, we must ensure every American has access to the tools needed to make opportunity possible," said Congresswoman Adams. "For far too long, our priorities haven't reflected the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness enshrined in our Constitution. We must make a commitment to invest in every man, woman and child in our nation by providing adequate funding for federal affordable housing programs, improving our healthcare system, addressing inequality in the public-school system, and expanding access to quality nutrition."
