PLEDGE OF PEACE AND NONVIOLENCE
By placing my name on this Cyber Wall of Peace and Nonviolence, I pledge to:
Treat others the way I would like to be treated
Stand against hate, injustice and intolerance
Commit to being truthful and loving
Work in my daily life for justice, equality, human rights and righting wrongs using nonviolence methodology…the ideals for which Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave their lives
By signing the Pledge, you commit to work on yourself to become the change you want to see.
Cleveland is unique in having an impressive statue of Mahatma Gandhi on a street named for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. By signing the Non-Violence Pledge and committing to these ideals, you can help Cleveland become more peaceful and prosperous.
These efforts have led to the designation of Cleveland Ohio as the 73rd Peace City in the world.
