I Pledge...

By recording your name and comment here, you offer a personal commitment to advance your knowledge and actions in building a safer, more fair world for all.

Change begins one person at a time, and it has never been more important to reflect on the morality of the moment. People throughout the nation and the world are calling for justice and the end to the racial discrimination that infects societies and the systems that govern our lives. From the brutal murder of George Floyd’s, adding yet one more name to the centuries-long list of victims of institutional racism, to the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on the Black community, unfolding events lend fresh urgency to the call to widely, publicly, and sincerely commit to race equity and an end to racism.

I pledge to work on electing local officials who truly know how to serve their constituents fairly and justly. I have done the census and will vote by mail.

I will write emails, call, and letters to extend the moratorium on rent and ask the federal government to protect allot more funds so renters are not homeless on the street. I will support small business, particularly Black owned businesses. As I extend my knowledge of how the entire justice system continues to incarcerate poor people and those who are not guilty of a crime except around paying fines, room and board in our prisons, and being left out of housing, food vouchers, and voting, I will work on helping people regain their voting rights as a citizen."

"I pledge to attend 3 race equity related seminars or events this year. I pledge to meet with a person of another race each month to learn more about their lived experience. I pledge to learn more about the history of racism and systemic racism in society today. I pledge to have ongoing conversations with a family member, friend, neighbor or colleague about what I’m learning about race. I pledge to speak up the next time I hear something racist. "
