TAKE THE PLEDGE
Created by authors Arun Gandhi and Bethany Hegedus, “Be the Change Pledge” is designed to be taken after a reading and discussion of Be the Change: A Grandfather Gandhi Story.
Be The Change Pledge
I pledge to dig deep to understand passive violence, to find the roots of my thoughts and actions.
I pledge to not overuse resources—to focus on my needs over my wants.
I pledge to learn to work with others, as one, for the good of all.
I pledge to be the change I wish to see in the world.
