Join The University of Mississippi and pledge to…

  • CHALLENGE stereotypes and CALL OUT sexist attitudes
  • SPEAK OUT if I hear excuses for violence or victim blaming
  • TREAT my significant other with respect
  • RESPECT the dignity of others

Together, we can STAND UP and not STAND BY, and stop violence before it starts.

Why Take the Pledge?

  • Too many women, men and children are affected every day by violence
  • Silence and inaction is a form of complicity
  • It takes all of us to change the culture to one that does not accept violence

Take the pledge now! Help us reach our goal of 7500 community members by November 1, 2014!
