Pledge to Stand Up for the Other

Join us in taking the pledge to speak out when members of our Jewish or any other ethnic, religious or racial community are being stereotyped or prejudiced against in your presence.


We also encourage you to download the New Jersey Interfaith Coalition’s Stand up for the Other pledge and post in your home and/or office to serve as a constant reminder that it is up to each and every one of us to challenge bigotry and stop the spread of hate.
