As part of my commitment to ending the language of hatred,
I will:
remember those whose lives have been destroyed through hatred and exclusion in the Holocaust, under Nazi persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur
challenge the language of hatred when I hear it and never use it myself
carefully consider how I use my voice and will tell others how I feel in a way that does not harm or offend, whether I am speaking, online or in writing
give voice to the voiceless and use my words to draw attention to the experiences of others
work with my friends, family, colleagues and my community to create a society which is free from the dangers of persecution and hatred
 
I swore never to be silent whenever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
- Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor
