Bishops United Election Day Pledge

Join us in walking the path of non-violence on Election Day.

God of Hope and Compassion,

Mindful of the devastating toll gun violence has taken on our country,
Resolved to spare our siblings in the human family the loss of loved ones,
And devoted to walking the path of non-violence,

We pledge to refrain from using firearms of any kind at or near polling places, at or near boards of election or drop boxes,
on Election Day
at gatherings that may occur—in our homes, in places of business, or in our streets—while votes are being counted,
or after results are announced.

In the name of your son Jesus Christ, we resolve to intensify our work against the hatreds, injustices and hopelessness that heighten the violence in our society, and to treat one another as your beloved children.
