Civil Air Patrol is committed to equality of opportunity. This means that CAP does not discriminate in offering access to its educational and operational programs and activities.
CAP wishes to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members and to ensure that educational, membership and operational decisions are based on each individual’s abilities and qualifications. Consistent with this principle, and applicable laws, it is CAP policy not to discriminate in offering access to its programs and activities, or with respect to membership terms and conditions, on the basis of race, sex, age, color, religion, national origin, or disability (formerly referred to as handicap). Such a policy ensures that only relevant factors are considered and that equitable and consistent standards of conduct and performance are applied.
