The Commitment states:

I believe

that we are called to lift each other up,

that we are stronger standing together,

that our differences are a blessing,

that empathy and love reveal the path to peace,

and that justice will prevail

because each of us is Beloved.

 

Therefore, I commit to

answer intolerance with goodwill,

live by faith and hope, not fear,

seek understanding and friendship whenever I can,

stand with those facing prejudice and injustice,

meet resistance with resiliency as I build the Beloved Community each day.
