MBK: Love Not Hate Pledge (Click to Sign Pledge)

Updated: Oct 24, 2023

Change has become a powerful word in our minds. More than ever, we are mindful of the call for civil justice and action within your community and ours.

Therefore we; the members of My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) have begun our campaign for change called

“Love Not Hate” and “If One Should Fall a Thousand Shall Rise”.

Today, we speak of hate, death, and murder as a natural phenomenon. Instead of speaking of a better future, we question whether we'll live long enough to have children of our own. We have decided to channel our fear into action. Due to the growing number of innocent victims of domestic violence, gang violence, violence against children, gender violence, hate crimes, college campus shootings, school shootings, and other acts of violence within your community and ours, we are demanding change. We cannot stop fighting for change.


Our FIRST goal is to get to the root of the hate and violence. We need to educate and inspire; we need a bailout; we need change across our Nation!

Our SECOND goal is to bring together people who want to implement change within their communities and stop the many forms of violence. Our program is one of education, inspiration, and unity. We want to energize and mobilize the citizens of our Great Nation, but we need your support.


"I am committed to ensure that our high schools and communities at large come together in a meaningful way and engage in collaborative cross-cultural educational community experiences to better understand and support each other. I believe we can win with compassion and eliminate hate, promoting love, patience and understanding with the critical supports required to protect and support each other. This effort must be woven throughout every fabric of our community and through our collective resilience, we will prevail!"

- Michael Prayor, NYCDOE HS Superintendent

"Positive change begins in our school communities and with our young people -- when we meet our students with empathy. patience, and kindness we empower them to do the same for their neighbors and to lend a helping hand to those who need it. Compassion is what we see when our communities come together to support and uplift one another through tough times and beyond."

- David C. Banks, NYCDOE Chancellor
