Pledge for Unity

For Students

I pledge to be aware of my words and actions and how they impact others.  I pledge to be aware that others’ words and actions may come from a place of hurt, anger or fear and try to respond with understanding rather than anger. I pledge to use my words and actions for good, even in the face of another’s anger. I pledge to reach out to those who are not like me in order to find understanding. I pledge to respond to those with whom I disagree with respect. I pledge to listen to the experiences of others with respect and an open mind. I pledge to love not hate.

For Adults

I pledge to be aware that young people are hearing my words and seeing my actions and to act in a way to positively influence them. I pledge to be aware of my words and actions and how they impact others, especially youth in my life.  I pledge to be aware that others’ words and actions may come from a place of hurt, anger or fear and try to respond with understanding rather than anger. I pledge to use my words and actions for good, even in the face of another’s anger. I pledge to reach out to those who are not like me in order to find understanding. I pledge to respond to those with whom I disagree with respect. I pledge to listen to the experiences of others with respect and an open mind. I pledge to love not hate.
