The Pledge To Combat Bigotry 


Whereas bigotry in all its forms is contrary to the inclusive, diverse, prosperous civil society Americans expect and deserve; 

Whereas hate-filled rhetoric stirs fear and creates division; 

Whereas instances of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim bigotry have sometimes gone unchallenged in public and political discourse; 

Whereas history has shown that sometimes hateful or ignorant rhetoric intensifies in frequency and virulence during election cycles;

I pledge to uphold civil discourse and

not engage in bigotry, whether it be in speech or actions,

and to speak out against those who do.
