Listening to another person’s opinion without trying to change their mind, checking your facts before you speak, and seeking common ground can pave the way to greater understanding of both the issues and the various options to address them.

Every time we communicate with another person, we vote for the kind of society we want to live in. 

When you take the pledge, you are making a commitment to yourself and your community, to strive, through your own conduct, to strive and to ensure that the others around you feel safe, listened to and heard.

Make your vote count.
