MOVii Says “One Step Forward, But with Much to Do“
“These achievements that reflect an inclusive and diverse environment, and highlights the importance of continuing to work for a more equitable future,” MOVii said in a news release. “We applaud the commitment of Puerto Vallarta, Almar Resort, Café des Artistes, Pride Puerto Vallarta and Grand Miramar Puerto Vallarta for their contribution to LGBTQ+ inclusion.”
MOVii took the occasion to suggest some initiatives that could further strengthen Puerto Vallarta’s commitment to diversity and inclusion are:
- Create a human rights category in the Vallarta Prize to recognize the commitment to the promotion and defense of human rights.
- Promote citizen participation of the LGBTIQ+ population through the creation of a Diversity Council, which allows active collaboration in decision-making and public policies.
- Harmonize local legislation, repealing discriminatory concepts such as “lack of morality and good customs” in the police and good government regulations.
- Generate inclusive public policies and allocate budget to social programs aimed at the sexually diverse population, with the aim of addressing existing inequalities.
“Puerto Vallarta is a beacon of diversity and inclusion, but we should not stop there. Let’s continue building together a Mexico where everyone feels valued and respected,” the organization said.
Forward with love and pride!
