In any act of oppression there are four players – a perpetrator, a victim, a bystander and an upstander.

Take the pledge to speak out against hate every time you see it or hear it.

Today, I speak out against the islamophobia and xenophobia behind Friday’s halting of immigration to our country as criteria are created to discriminate against those from Muslim countries. Today a mosque was burned to the ground in Texas. Words of fear and hate lead to actions of fear and hate.
