Never Again Movement and Pledge
Never Again Movement and Pledge is a global youth led promotional program, introduced in 2010 to express their collective fears, truth and desire to draw inspiration from tragedies of the past, (The Holocaust and Slavery) while connecting to the present day tragedies with the rise in hate crimes, violence and mass shootings and an expressed concern that all may repeat in the future. The pledge emerged, When the students were asked; what are you willing to stand up for and what are you willing to stand against?
Here is the pledge:
I pledge to never again allow the ugly parts of our past history to become the present.
I will forever stand up against racism, hatred, injustice and crimes against our youth.
I will always stand up for peace, justice and equality for all.
