Characters Unite: Take the USA Network Pledge Against Discrimination

CharactersUniteI don’t have much tolerance for intolerance, prejudice, and discrimination of any kind, which is why I am happy to feature Characters Unite. In a world where children are bullied to death and people fear and hate others because of race, religion, sexual orientation, or other differences, we all need to do our part to help create more tolerance and acceptance among people.

The Characters Unite campaign is a movement and pledge created by the USA Network. When you sign the Characters Unite pledge, you are making a commitment to combat intolerance, prejudice, discrimination and hate. You pledge to promote greater acceptance, understanding, and mutual respect.  For every pledge made this month, USA Network will donate $1 to its Children’s Defense Fund, National Council of Women’s Organization, and other non-profit partners.

The Pledge

“As a character of the USA, I pledge to stand against intolerance, prejudice, discrimination and hate, and to promote greater understanding and acceptance.  I believe life is richer and we are stronger as a country when we see beyond stereotypes and appreciate each other for the characters we are.  After all, characters are what makes us, USA.”

USA Network has pledged to donate $1 for every pledge made over the next four weeks. I urge all of my readers to take this pledge. You can do your part to help raise money to fight intolerance, prejudice, discrimination and hate by taking the pledge here.
