Pledge Purple

Pledge Purple is a yearlong initiative, focused on education and advocacy with the goal of ending sexual violence, harassment, and bullying.  The university provides one week of focused programming in the fall, with this year’s activities scheduled for November 5-7, 2018.

The Pledge
I will not use my hands or words in acts of violence, bullying or sexual assault.  I will educate myself about what violence, bullying and sexual assault looks like in the Pirate community.  I will support my fellow Pirates and safely intervene as an active bystander if I witness scenarios of violence, bullying or sexual assault.
