the
pledge

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

That all people are created equal
and born with certain unalienable rights,
including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,
regardless of who they love, how they identify,
where they come from, or the color of their skin.

But all too often, that truth is forgotten.
All too often, those rights are ignored.
As all too many stand in silence,
and all too many suffer alone.

That’s why we pledge to come together.
And commit to act for the greater good.

Until the land of the free is free of racism.

Until the home of the brave is brave enough to change.

Until “by the people” and “for the people”
means doing right by all the people.

UNTIL JUSTICE JUST IS.

I pledge to advance racial justice in my home, my workplace, and my broader community. I won’t stop until this country is free of racism.
