As a person of faith,
I believe that all people have inherent dignity.
I affirm that all people have a right to migrate for their safety and livelihood.
I reject the demonization of people who are migrating.
I pledge to stand in solidarity with those seeking refuge in my country by:
- Being a Voice of Truth and Compassion: By speaking the truth about our human family fleeing danger and rejecting untruthful and xenophobic statements that misrepresent those who migrate;
- Accompanying and Supporting: By physically accompanying those who are seeking safety in the United States at the border or in my local community AND/OR supporting the people in my community and at the border who are accompanying asylum seekers;
- Taking Action and Advocating: Taking action to hold elected leaders accountable — calling on them to lift up people’s inherent dignity through policies and government actions that will protect people from violence, repression, and extreme poverty.
