In this unique time when we’re bombarded with conflicting and polarizing
real-time news, there are certain consistent truths that we can rely on.
One of those truths is that [NEIGHBORHOOD NAME] is and will always be a place for
everyone. [NEIGHBORHOOD NAME] neighbors come from different backgrounds, races, religions, orientations, belief systems and cultures. We fundamentally believe that our differences make us strong, unique, powerful and complete. We embrace
and respect one another first as neighbors, and we strive to look out for each
This statement, signed and approved unanimously by the [NAME OF NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL] together with our neighbors, affirms that [NEIGHBORHOOD NAME] is and will always be a safe, welcoming place for people from anywhere. We encourage immigrants and refugees to join our community, we will welcome you as our neighbor and embrace you as our friend.
If there should be a time where an individual or group is cast out based on
their country of origin, sexual or gender orientation, religion, or social status, we
will stand by them and invite them to [NEIGHBORHOOD NAME] to join our community.”
