Today’s political and personal discourse in America has devolved to a place where the insult of the day is an everyday occurrence. We hear it from President Trump and from President Trump’s opponents. We hear it from individuals directed at strangers walking down the street or sitting at a coffee shop.

To help bring our country back to civility in both politics and everyday life, The Lesniak Institute For American Leadership is hosting a Stand Up For The Other Forum with political, religious and community leaders to encourage the recitation of the Stand Up For The Other Pledge at government, education and community events.



While interacting with members of my own faith, or ethnic, or gender community, or with others, if I hear hateful comments from anyone about members of any other community, I pledge to stand up for the other and speak up to challenge bigotry in any form.

To find out more information and register to attend the Forum at Kean University on Thursday, July 12, 7-9 pm, click here. It will also be available on FaceBook Live.
