1. Ignore Hate

Random Acts Of Kindness

When you pledge Random Acts of Kindess, you will recieve an email indicating how many acts of kindness you can do to match the amount of hateful hours unwanted visitors are on campus.

Umbrella USHERS

Volunteer to be an usher and use umbrellas with loving, inclusive-community messages to shield students and faculty who might be potential targets of hateful messages.

Community Service

If the pledge was a pledge to serve community service for each hour for each unwanted visitor, the pledger can log onto Give Pulse. On this website pledgers can both find opportunities to provide community service in the area, they can also track the hours they spend to fulfill their pledge.

Donations

Monetary pledges match the amount of hateful hours that the unwanted visitors are on campus. The donations diectly benefit groups targeted by the unwanted visitors: LGTBQ+ Center, the Multicultural Center, the Women's Center and/or the Frederick Douglass Institute.

A fair distance away from where the uninvited visitors choose to stand, we will set up a PLEDGE TO STOP HATE table. The table will contain the following items:
