Tell everyone on myspace to come here to sign the "Pledge to Protect." Spread the word so that we can get over 100,000 people to sign the "Pledge to Protect" by the end of this year (2006). Read the pledge below. If you agree with the pledge, please post a comment on this page saying, "I Pledge to Protect!" Here is the pledge:
PLEDGE TO PROTECT..RM..
I, ___________________________, pledge to do my best to protect my family, friends, and peers in potentially dangerous situations where drugs, alcohol, a violent person, or other threats to their safety and well-being are present. I will do this by having the focus and self-control necessary to remain aware of my surroundings, the wisdom to identify dangerous situations, and the courage to confront my friends when their judgment is impaired.
I recognize that these dangerous situations may arise at times when people feel safe and comfortable, such as at bars, parties, or in the context of a romantic relationship, and I realize that it may not always be easy to protect people from harm in these situations (example: when alcohol is influencing the situation and a person is trying to ?hook up? with another individual). By remaining watchful and showing care and concern, I may help to prevent a sexual assault from occurring.
I understand that the ONLY person responsible for a sexual assault is the person who engages in sexual contact without the consent of the other person. Through my own positive words, actions, and beliefs, I am taking the responsibility of helping to end sexual assault. I will share with people the importance of consent and the need to obtain consent with your partner. I will inform all of my family, friends, and peers that if anyone ever sexually touches them without their consent, I will fully support them (from simply listening to helping them seek support from proper professionals). I will treat all survivors of sexual assault with my respect and admiration. Sexual assault is a horrific and traumatic crime. My active commitment to this project will help reduce the violence in my community and create a safer atmosphere for everyone.
Sign this agreement Right Now by posting a message on this page that says, "I Pledge to Protect."
Remember the goal -- 100,000 people posting the message "I Pledge to Protect" on this myspace page. Post your message right now!
