A Few Words

The Pledge of Allegiance rewritten

By Devin from Project Citizen in Connecticut

My American Creed is love and diversity shared across all facets of the World. Equal opportunity to jobs, great education, fair trial, and justice. My American Creed is the end to Supremacy and Fascism for the sake of a Utopia. A Utopia that will only be constructed when no group of people is oppressed. A creed that ratifies race, sexual orientation, gender, and religious beliefs to be as significant as the color of your eyes.

Project Citizen '19

Project Citizen is a youth writing lab that is offered as part of the Connecticut Writing Project at Fairfield University. The mission of Project Citizen is to empower young writers to engage in issues of social and political importance through a variety of genres in order to both find their voice and to become fully realized citizens in our democracy. Project Citizen brings together students from school districts and towns in Fairfield county that represent a variety of economic, racial, ethnic, and religious demographic groups in an effort to break down the "zip code apartheid" that stands in the way of true collaborative learning.
