Sociologists without Borders/Socíologos Sin Fronteras (SSF) was founded in Spain in 2001, and in the United States in 2002, as a transnational association of sociologists committed to the following principles: that all people have equal rights to political freedoms and legal protections, to socioeconomic security, to self-determination, and to their personality. That is, old or young, regardless of where they live, their faith, and whether they are male or female, gay or straight, and regardless of their skin color they have the same universal rights, including their rights to their own particular cultures. SSF also promotes an understanding that collective goods, including a sustainable environment, cannot be privatized.
