The i-word, “
illegals,” creates an environment of hate by exploiting racial fear and economic anxiety, creating an easy scapegoat for complex issues, and OK-ing violence against those labeled with the word.
By taking this pledge, you are committing to eliminate the racially derogatory term, “
illegals,” from use within the church, popular usage and public discourse and for choosing instead to use language that affirms the inherent worth of all people in the eyes of God.

I Pledge to Drop the I-Word
and I ask church and secular media to do the same!
