Pledge to End Racism
Thirty six of us have taken The Pledge to End Racism. Will you join us?
In order to make the Pledge to End Racism something that becomes an integral part of our daily lives, the First Unitarian Universalist …. Designed a workshop for signers of the pledge to reflect, learn, and practice how to develop and maintain this commitment. In October and November, 2020, five of us, including Rev. Margaret Weis, were able to take the virtual Living the Pledge Workshop, and in December, twenty of us participated in a two day training for workshop facilitators.
We are bringing the Living the Pledge Workshop to Ithaca in its virtual format in 2021!
I BELIEVE that every person has worth as an individual.
I BELIEVE that every person is entitled to dignity and respect, regardless of race or color.
I BELIEVE that every thought and every act of racial prejudice is harmful; if it is my thought or act, then it is harmful to me as well as to others.
Therefore, from this day forward:
I WILL strive daily to eliminate racial prejudice from my thoughts and actions.
I WILL discourage racial prejudice by others at every opportunity.
I WILL treat all people with dignity and respect;
I WILL commit to working with others to transform this community into a place that treats people of all races, ethnicities, and cultures with justice, equity, and compassion, and
I WILL strive daily to honor this pledge, knowing that the world will be a better place because of my effort.
