The pledge says, "I pledge to responsibly commit my time and talent to ensure that the nation is empowered to achieve the following goals by 2025:
- Every American child is ready for college, work and life.
- Every American has access to jobs with a living wage and good benefits.
- Every American lives in safe, decent, affordable and energy efficient housing on fair terms.
- Every American has access to quality and affordable health care solutions."
So take the pledge, and check out the National Urban League’s cool video below:
The National Urban League is the nation’s oldest and largest community-based movement devoted to empowering African Americans to enter the economic and social mainstream. Girl Scouts has partnered with the National Urban League in the past, and has a long history of diversity and inclusion. The first Girl Scout troop for African American girls was formed in 1917, and by the 1950s, GSUSA had begun a national effort to desegregate all Girl Scout troops. In 1956, Martin Luther King Jr. described Girl Scouts as “a force for desegregation.”
