Talking Back to Hate

I pledge to be a voice for respect and acceptance, and to take action with others in my school, workplace, home, community, or place of worship to create a more safe, accepting and inclusive environment. I will stay alert to all forms of hate speech and discrimination in my area and take steps to prevent and discourage these acts of hate. As part of my pledge, I commit to pay attention to my speech on a daily basis and to reflect on how my thoughts and words affect my actions and interactions with others.  [sign the pledge]

uri.logoThe United Religions Initiative (URI) has begun an international campaign against hate speech, Talking Back to Hate. In the face of discrimination, hate speech, and bullying, the URI is highlighting stories of people who have stood up and taken action against hatred.

Go to their new website, Talking Back To Hate, to take the pledge against hate speech, commit to taking action, discover resource materials, and share your story about dealing with discrimination, prejudice, or bullying in school, at work, or in your community.
