SIGN THE EMPATHY PLEDGE
Please join me by signing the pledge below which I will take from Paris to Berlin and present in front of the Brandenburg Gate. You can can also sign it in person if you can make it to any of these cities. The pledge was written by Dr. Brian May and Grig Richters.
The United Nations Refugee Agency estimates there are a shocking 25.4 million refugees in the world at present, over half of whom are children.
I stand with every man, woman and child that has been forced to flee their home. I pledge to respect all displaced persons as human beings, not migrants. I believe that if we learn to treat all people with respect and compassion rather than suspicion and indifference, this world will become a better place for us all.
