The Pledge of Allegiance to Each Other
We the people are committed to our neighbors next door and miles away. We pledge to one another to live into a visionary American story of unity in diversity, and hope over fear.

To my neighbors:
I pledge to meet you at the table of community in which we can all thrive.
