City Pledge

1900 Storm
The Galveston Pledge

  • As a Citizen of Galveston, I believe we can make this city one great place to live.
  • I believe this can occur because we bring to the table our rich traditions, and cultural heritages.
  • I believe people of all these traditions and cultural heritage have to respect one another.
  • I believe that if we understand and accept our differences, we will realize every person has worth as an individual.
  • I believe that if I cannot accept individual differences, be they racial, religious, cultural, or sexual orientation, then I become part of the problem.
  • Therefore, from this day on, I pledge that I will accept each Galvestonian's individual differences and encourage my family and friends to do likewise.
  • For I understand that together, we are all one in the human race.
