Tá an SDLP gníomhach ar son na Gaeilge agus ar son Acht speisialta a bhunú leis an teanga a chaomhnú agus a chothú. Tá sé thar a bheith riachtanach go mbeidh an tAcht bunaithe ar chearta Gaeilgeoirí a dteanga a úsáid sa saol poiblí gan bhac gan deacracht.
It was the SDLP in the 1970s that insisted that housing should be taken away from local authorities who had proved unfit to discharge their responsibilities. Local Government was reformed and responsibility for housing was vested in the Northern Ireland Housing Executive. Those reforms put an end to discrimination in housing. The SDLP has been at the forefront of many other housing reforms since then.
Communities in the North want the rule of law and safer neighbourhoods. That's why the SDLP has been working for accountability and change on the Policing Board and Policing and Community Safety Partnerships.
