What is wrong with:

"The GNU Project encourages contributions from anyone who wishes to
advance the development of the GNU system, regardless of gender, race,
ethnic group, physical appearance, religion, cultural background, and
any other demographic characteristics, as well as personal political
views." from the kind communications guidelines?

If you think having a social contract is a good idea, it might be more
palatable to compose it of excerpts and paragraphs already available in
the philosophy section of and streamline those into one
coherent document, indicating from which essays the various parts

That way you end up with a consistent summary of the important ideas
many GNU supporters already more-or-less agree on, and getting any
adoption should prove far easier.
