Not In Our Town Pledge

Take the Pledge Today!

I pledge to stand up to all forms of hate, bigotry and bullying. I will not stay silent in the face of intolerance based on race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, religion, ability or any other factor. I will work together with my neighbors to create safer, more inclusive communities for all.


If you stand up to hate and bullying, you can change someone’s life—maybe even your own. The Pledge is a reminder to speak up:

  • when you see someone being bullied or harassed,
  • when you hear a bigoted comment or “joke,” or
  • when you see cruel messages on social media.

Keep the Pledge to stop bullying and hate in your head and in your heart. Share it with others. It starts with each one of us taking a step. If we all stand up together, we can change our school, our workplace, our community, our country. We can change our world.

Here are some examples from: California, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, and West Virginia.
