A Safe Place Covenant
Examine: We will ask, “Does this contribute to love?” before we do anything.
Engage: We will act with respect, compassion, and generosity toward every person.
Listen: We will look for what is good in others, listening to their whole story.
Speak: We will speak only for ourselves, except to speak up for someone who is hurt.
Act: We will make people feel safe when they are with us.
