Belonging Pledge: Individuals

I believe that everyone belongs in our community and has the right to equality, freedom from discrimination, and equitable treatment.

By signing this pledge I commit to:

  1. act against discrimination, intolerance, and the harmful effects of hate;
  2. Canada’s reconciliation with First Nation, M├ętis, and Inuit peoples and my role in reconciliation;
  3. join with others in a collective effort to nurture belonging;
  4. speak and stand up against discrimination in all its forms;
  5. continuously educate myself, my peers, and the organizations I belong to about the rise in hate, its causes, and our responsibility to stand against it;
  6. pressing community leaders to take effective action against hate, starting with strong and public condemnation whenever hate occurs;
  7. pressing for the review of policies, by-laws, practices, and procedures using an anti-oppression framework to nurture inclusion and belonging;
  8. staying engaged in this movement for change; and
  9. contributing to a welcoming community in all my interactions, to promote and celebrate belonging.
