The WIMBY Pledge

The WIMBY Pledge
Welcome In My Backyard

I affirm that I welcome individuals from all walks of life into my neighborhood and my community, and that I value human diversity in all its forms. I cherish my right to live according to my own values and beliefs, and I respect the rights of all others to do the same.

I am personally opposed to—and will try to speak out against—discrimination, harassment, and intolerance based on a person’s:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • NationalOrigin
  • Sex
  • Disability
  • Familial Status
  • Marital Status
  • Age
  • Source of Income
  • Student Status
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Gender Identity
  • Gender Expression
  • Military Status
  • Immigration Status

I recognize that I might also hold various prejudices and stereotypes that have developed during my lifetime. Over the next year, I will try to better understand and reverse such personal biases to avoid acting upon them.

I will display the WIMBY sign as a way to increase awareness in my neighborhood and my community about the need to foster more inclusive environments.

I pledge to respect those whose backgrounds and experiences are different from my own by saying, “You are Welcome In My Backyard.”
