Take the Civility Pledge
Civility Pledge (This is a pledge we provide to all our supporters. It is entirely voluntary. Many have printed out the pledge, signed it, framed it, and placed it in a place of prominence in their offices. If you have questions about any part of the pledge please feel free to ask. The text comes from our book: Bring a Dish to Pass: The Civil Action of Community Improvement. Copies can be acquired from our website--www.civilitycenter.org)
In all of my daily interactions I pledge to do my best to:
*View everyone in positive terms
*Work on building common language
*Build strong relationships of trust
*Remember our shared humanity
*Value both the process and the results
*Look both inside and outside for guidance.
Through this pledge I acknowledge that:“Everyone has the right and the responsibility to improve his or her community, and if we all work together—in a well planned way, addressing the factors that affect all of our lives—we can make a difference for all families. As members of society, we are all resources and agents of change.”
(Bring a Dish to Pass page 7)
To have your own certificate of this pledge which can be printed, framed, and displayed, please go to: http://www.civilitycenter.org/documents/pledgecert.pdf
In addition, our goal is to have 1 million people download, sign, frame, and display this pledge. Please pass it one to everyone you know who might be of a like mind in this matter. To support our International Campaign for Civility we are asking all who sign to consider making a small donation to the National Civility Center ($1 to $10). This can be done at www.civilitycenter.org or through the National Civility Center on www.change.org.
