HUGs -- UpLifting HUGs


About HUGs

Proactively advocating for and supporting Historically Underrepresented Groups (HUGs)
Creating awareness, understanding, and recognition of oppression, even within 'progressive' groups and movements such as Occupy.
We encourage proactively engaging in the struggle to not simply tolerate diversity but to accept, even celebrate, such healthy variance.
We strive to embrace, to hug, Historically Underrepresented Groups (HUGs).

Is HUGs simply another euphemism for "minorities"?
No, for example, women are not a 'minority', yet are very oppressed and underrepresented in crucial social, economic and political sectors. See: What are HUGs?.

Subscribe to HUGs by filling out the following form. You will be sent email requesting confirmation, to prevent others from gratuitously subscribing you. Once confirmation is received, your request will be held for approval by the list moderator. You will be notified of the moderator's decision by email. This is also a hidden list, which means that the list of members is available only to the list administrator.

(Note that this is an umbrella list, intended to have only other mailing lists as members. Among other things, this means that your confirmation request will be sent to the `-owner' account for your address.)
