WAG’s Non-Violence Pledge for Students
- I pledge to resolve conflicts without violence. When I am in a potentially toxic situation, I will remember that I can usually avoid trouble by walking away. And if a problem is bigger than I can handle, I am not “too cool” to go to someone with authority for help.
- I pledge to be a critical thinker. I know I have full control of my destiny and the decisions I make. It is my right to have the best life I can so I will have the courage to do the right thing, even when everyone else is not.
- I pledge to respect myself. I value my future more than pride or street cred. I know that violence leads to jail, death or disability so I owe it to myself to hang around people who want the best for me.
