Stand Up for the Other: Take the Pledge
This pledge was initiated by Dr. Mohammad Ali Chaudry during the quarterly meeting of an Interfaith Advisory Council of the NJ Department of Homeland Security and Preparedness (OHSP) held at Drew University in March 2015.

The question was whether interfaith dialogues and related work were making a difference. What is our responsibility as faith leaders when violence rips apart communities. Are we succeeding in achieving our goals of creating harmony among our diverse communities?

Dr. Chaudry concluded we would know if we were succeeding when people begin to confront those in their inner circles about any bigotry or hate toward other groups, be they Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh, Bahai, Buddhist or people of any faith or no faith at all.
