Community For Change Pledge - We the people of Montgomery County recognize that Black lives matter, as do the lives of all indigenous people and people of color. We acknowledge that our nation has fallen short on many levels in affirming this basic truth. We come together with the purpose of creating change that starts in our local communities and that will bring social justice, equity and basic human rights to all people.
We demand that the following organizations and institutions that serve our community must be proactive in making substantive internal changes in service of that purpose.
- Police departments & other Public Health and Safety Departments
- Local Government & Criminal Justice Systems
- Public Schools & Educational Institutions
- Health Care Facilities
- Community & Human Service Organizations
Each of these institutions are charged to immediately:
- Investigate current practices, policies, procedures, training and curriculum & their effect on Black, indigenous and people of color.
- Revise or remove practices, policies, procedures, training and curriculum that actively or passively harm or exclude Black, indigenous & people of color.
- Develop new practices, policies, procedures, training and curriculum that actively promote diversity, inclusion, equity and representation of Black, indigenous & people of color.
- All investigations, revisions and development should include participants from every level of the organization, the community served, and Black, indigenous and people of color; and be done with complete transparency.
- Institute a no-tolerance policy for racism and hate speech for those who represent the organization in any capacity, regardless of time or place of incident.
