Take the Pledge to A.C.T. to End Racism with CFYJ

Campaign for Youth Justice

I believe that for all children to thrive, I must commit to anti-racism work that involves addressing both internal and external racial and ethnic bias within myself, my community, our institutions, and our collective values.

I acknowledge and reconcile the promise of the American dream with the reality of slavery, displacement, and racial and ethnic terror that served as the foundation of our country’s economy.

I acknowledge that we are responsible for maintaining and supporting systems that perpetuate oppression and subjugation as a vestige of slavery, genocide, and exclusionary immigration policies.  

Everyday I must confront, reflect upon, and stop taking actions that maintain or contribute to racial and ethnic bias, harm, and disparate negative outcomes against people of color.  

I am committed to dismantling and reimagining a transformative justice system that provides accountability and consequences, but prioritizes the restoration of survivors and those who have committed harm over punishment.

A part of this legacy is the adultification of youth which is inherently racist and must be abolished in our laws, policies, and practices.

I am committed to awakening, confronting, and transforming myself, my community, our institutions, and our values to reflect my core beliefs in equity, humanity, and justice for all.
