The Hampton Pledge

The Hampton Pledge

I believe that every person has infinite worth as an individual.

I believe that every person is entitled to dignity and respect, regardless of race, color, religion, age, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.

I believe that every thought and every act of any type of prejudice is harmful to me as well as others.

Therefore, from this day forward, I will strive to eliminate all types of prejudice from my thoughts and actions.

I will strive to eliminate all types of prejudice by others at every opportunity.

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