A pledge is a commitment by an individual to act to promote our key aims. Pledges take many forms, but typically fall into one of four categories:
- Using the media to inform a wider audience of the impact of hatred and intolerance;
- Promoting awareness of these issues through education, typically in schools and universities;
- Holding an event, such as a school assembly or local talk; or
- Organising a Memorial Day to mark the EU’s Srebrenica Memorial Day on the 11 July.

We also consider other types of pledges, made on a one-off basis.
I Pledge to…
Remember those who were brutally murdered in the genocide of Srebrenica in 1995.
Remember those who were left behind to grieve their loss, and who rebuilt their lives with courage and dignity.
Remember the women and girls who were brutally raped as a weapon of ethnic cleansing.
Speak out against the language of hate, which if allowed to go unchecked, can lead to the dehumanisation of others.
Make sure my voice will always stand for justice, and will speak out against injustice wherever I find it.
Call upon and support my government in establishing justice and reconciliation as part of our responsibility within the international community.
Work with others to establish a community that works for the common good of all, and is free from hatred and discrimination.
Our pledge programme ensures that lessons learned from Srebrenica with regards to the importance of tackling intolerance, prejudice and hatred are implemented in British society.
We would like to thank the following people who have this year completed pledges to host events, including Memorials, prayers, community gatherings and educational events.
