Drop the I-Word. Sign the Pledge.


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.

If you want to join me in eliminating the use of the i-word, please click on the following link to see and sign the pledge. By signing the pledge you will commit yourself 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.

Sign the Pledge

Please visit the General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) of The United Methodist Church For more information.
