As politicians try to divide us against one another according to race, ethnicity, and or nationality, we remain united and steadfast in our conviction that all people deserve dignity, respect, and equity, and that together we can make such a world possible. We are people of faith and conscience, coming from a long tradition of welcoming the sojourner and loving our neighbor and, following the example of our sacred texts, pledge our commitment to be good neighbors to those seeking refuge in our community, and to build a community where all are welcome.
PEOPLE OF FAITH AND CONSCIENCE ARE PLEDGING TO STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH PEOPLE SEEKING REFUGE
- Speak Truth: I pledge to speak the truth about our human family fleeing danger and reject the dishonest and xenophobic narrative would have me view them as a threat;
- Accompany: I pledge to physically accompany those who are seeking safety in the United States OR I pledge to support the people in my community and at the border who are accompanying asylum seekers;
- Advocate and Organize: I pledge to take action and hold elected leaders accountable for dehumanizing those seeking protection from persecution and violence. Alongside community members, I pledge to include and advocate for immigrant families and individuals in my community. #AsylumIsLegal
