Sign the Pledge

I pledge to take action against domestic violence by choosing not to remain silent.

Instead, I will speak up for those in my neighborhood, family, work or school who are victims of abuse.

I will create a peaceful and safe environment in my home; and will not raise my hand in violence nor my voice in anger.

By living this pledge, I am joining with others to end violence in my home and community.


Me comprometo a tomar acción contra la violencia doméstica y no quedarme en silencio.

Alzaré mi voz en mi comunidad, vecindad, familia, trabajo y escuela en nombre de quienes son víctimas de abuso.

Crearé un ambiente de seguridad y paz en mi hogar. No alzaré mis manos en violencia, ni mi voz con ira.

Al honrar esta promesa, me uno a este movimiento para eliminar la violencia en mi hogar y en nuestra comunidad.
