Our Pledge

It is our pledge to make a lasting contribution to all that is finest and best in

America, to cherish and enrich her heritage of freedom and progress by working

for the integration of all her people regardless of race, creed, or national origin,

into her spiritual, social, cultural, civic, and economic life, and thus, aid her to

achieve the glorious destiny of a true and unfettered democracy.
