Birmingham Pledge  

I believe...
that every person has worth as an individual.
I believe every person is entitled to dignity and respect, regardless of race or color.
I believe 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.

Today
Birmingham, Alabama ignited a fire that illuminated social injustice throughout the South and nation as a whole. Today, the city once known for police dogs and bombings is at the center of efforts to remedy America’s history of pervasive racial inequality through alliances once thought impossible. The Birmingham Pledge is one of the key components of that movement.  

... the Pledge’s goal to eliminate racism in the world one person at a time.  

"The Birmingham Pledge is important because it shows the world that a genuine effort toward racial reconciliation and acceptance of diversity is possible even in a city with the history of Birmingham."
