This house believes that Black Lives Matter should closely integrate the black church and black liberation theology into its philosophy, doctrine, and activities.

Black liberation theology is a theological perspective which originated among black seminarians and scholars, and in black churches. It uses Christian doctrines and narratives to help people of African descent contextualise and overcome their oppression. It has been especially focused on the injustices committed against African Americans and black South Africans during American segregation and apartheid, respectively.

This house, as the Palestinian Authority, would advocate for a one state solution rather than a two state one.

The "one-state solution" refers to a resolution of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict through the creation of a unitary state, which would encompass all of the present territory of Israel, including East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, as well as the West Bank (including areas under the current control of the Palestinian Authority) and the Gaza Strip. The two-state solution envisages the creation of an independent Palestinian state alongside the State of Israel. The exact boundary between the two states is still subject to dispute and negotiation, however it is likely that a Palestinian state would include the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

This house believes that social movements should use the courts rather than the legislature to advance social change. (e.g. marriage equality, reproductive rights, civil liberties)
