Resolution of Respect

  • I will seek to gain understanding of those who are different from myself.
  • I will speak out against prejudice and discrimination.
  • I will reach out to support those who are targets of hate.
  • I will promote respect for people and help foster a prejudice-free school.
  • I believe that one person can make a difference – no person can be an “innocent” bystander when it comes to opposing hate.
  • I recognize that respecting individual dignity and promoting intergroup harmony are the responsibilities of all students.
