There is a crying need in Ontario for a civil liberties association that stands for civil liberties.
We distinguish an individual’s societal influence by expression from an individual’s actuated power that derives from his/her institutional hierarchical position.
We hold that the individual’s societal influence by expression, not structurally derived from the institutional and organizational hierarchy, is an absolute right, irrespective of race, gender, orientation, etc.
We believe that societal health depends on the individual’s absolute right to free expression.
OCLA is a non-profit organization founded to defend the civil liberties of individuals from erosion by society’s powerful groups. You can read more about OCLA at our About page.
