They're a small + important first step anyone can take toward social justice + racial healing. 👀 ⬇️

The Birmingham Pledge is an effort of the Birmingham, Ala., community to recognize the dignity and worth of every individual. The Birmingham Pledge is our way to share with the world our community's commitment to eliminate prejudice in the lives of all people.

It is a personal, daily commitment to remove prejudice from our own lives, as well as the lives of others, and to treat all people with respect. In November 1997, inspired by the historic events in Birmingham during the civil rights movement, Birmingham attorney James E. Rotch composed a statement - - a personal commitment, to recognize the importance of every individual, regardless of race or col

Our Story

The Birmingham Pledge is our way to share with the world our community's commitment to eliminate prejudice in the lives of all people. It is a personal, daily commitment to remove prejudice from our own lives, as well as the lives of others, and to treat all people with respect.

In November 1997, inspired by the historic events in Birmingham during the civil rights movement, Birmingham attorney James E. Rotch composed a statement - - a personal commitment, to recognize the importance of every individual, regardless of race or color. This commitment became The Birmingham Pledge, a grassroots movement initiated and promoted by the Community Affairs Committee of Operation New Birmingham to eliminate prejudice in Birmingham and throughout the world. Since that time, The Birmingham Pledge has provided people with a focal point to “pledge” to personally remove prejudice from their life, treating all people with dignity and respect. To date, tens of thousands of people worldwide have signed this personal commitment, striving daily to honor the pledge.

THE BIRMINGHAM PLEDGE

I believe that every person has worth as an individual.

I believe that every person is entitled to dignity and respect, regardless of race or color.

I believe that every thought and every act of racial prejudice is harmful; if it is my thought or act, then it is harmful to me as well as to others.

Therefore, from this day forward I will strive daily to eliminate racial prejudice from my thoughts and actions.

I will discourage racial prejudice by others at every opportunity.

I will treat all people with dignity and respect; and I will strive daily to honor this pledge, knowing that the world will be a better place because of my effort.
