The Pledge: As a candidate for a U.S. public office in 2018 — or as someone currently occupying a U.S. public office, as the case may be — I pledge to support and advance these four aims:
- Ample funding for community-based violence prevention programs and the enforced regulation of the manufacture, sale, transfer, and use of firearms.
- The non-violent resolution of international conflict and the abolition of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons.
- The sharp reduction of government military spending, and conversion from a military and fossil-fuel based economy to a sustainable economy that meets such civilian needs as health care, education, housing, mass transportation, renewable energy, and ending poverty.
- The provision of re-training and alternative employment for soldiers and military industry workers, enabling them to apply their experience and skills to civilian production.
In keeping with the above aims, I will not knowingly accept any campaign donations from military contractors or fossil fuel corporations.
