- make decisions about their lives and the resources at their disposal to improve health, economic well-being and satisfaction;
- know where to find reliable information and how to use it in solving the problems they face, individually and collectively, through voluntary action;
- recognize their relationships to one another and act in ways that honor and respect all people;
- direct public policy through active participation in identifying problems, selecting among alternative solutions and setting priorities;
- understand the inter-relationship of issues facing communities and the state and their individual actions.
