Toward the Evolution of Patriotism

by Margo Stebbing with input from our Indivisible Women's group

 

I pledge allegiance to the earth, and to all its peoples;

to the Native Americans, to the African Americans, to the Asian Americans and to all the people in our history marginalized and harmed.

I pledge to make amends whenever possible and to work to be a better ally.

To the trees, the sky, the air and the water, the four leggeds, the finned, the winged, the glorious pollinators.

To unpolluted food and environmental protection and justice.

To immigrant families and their protection,

and to the great work of un-othering.

I pledge allegiance to evolve into the family of life, and to lay my privilege at the feet of our belonging.

I pledge to a thriving co-existence within the great web and weft of life; indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
