Welcome the Stranger. Sign the Pledge

Welcome the stranger. Sign the pledge.

Because no one leaves his or her homeland without a reason,

because we are all “strangers” somewhere,

because everyone deserves dignity and respect,

and because my faith teaches that compassion, mercy, love, and hospitality are for everyone,

I pledge to welcome the stranger.

I will offer hospitality and accept his or her hospitality in whatever form it takes.

I will speak openly with him or her and listen deeply, building bridges between us through conversation.

I will respect and honor that he or she may be of a different faith than mine, and I will practice my own faith proudly without demeaning anyone else’s beliefs.

I will speak out against intolerance when I see him or her being excluded, wronged, or oppressed.
