Anti-Racism Ally Pledge

I pledge to support Black community members and address the injustices that stem from systemic racism within our society. I understand that current power structures are designed to oppress people of color and I will not passively accept this institutionalized inequality. Instead, I personally vow to incite positive change by:

  • Educating myself on Black history and striving to understand all systemic challenges Black Americans face
  • Sharing my knowledge about white privilege proactively with others and speaking up whenever faced with anti-Black remarks
  • Listening to Black community members with intention and engagement
  • Supporting Black individuals in organizations so that workplace culture can become increasingly equitable and just
  • Acknowledging my own privilege and power and utilizing it to deconstruct oppression and hold my community accountable

By signing the pledge, I recognize it’s not enough to “not be racist”, but being actively anti-racist and against racial injustice.

Thank you for standing against racial injustice!
