It's simple: we can have different views without hurting each other.

Take a stand. Join with your fellow Americans from all across the political spectrum, in agreeing that violence around the election is not for us. 

Can you get your friends, neighbors, and leaders --  from elected officials to local business owners to faith leaders -- to agree as well?

This pledge from the Peace Alliance shows progressives and conservatives signing to agree and you can sign, too. Click here.
