A message from our co-chairs:
Thank you to everyone who participated in our nationwide listening tour. In addition to reviewing the public contributions submitted on this site, the Dignity.us team interviewed stakeholders across 50 states, the territories, and tribal lands, including hate-fueled violence experts, practitioners, and targeted community members.
In response to the feedback we received, we’ve launched Bedrock, a new organization dedicated to supporting the institutions and leaders reversing the exponential increase in hate-fueled violence in America.
Bedrock is a nonpartisan organization with bipartisan leadership working across a partnership network of national leaders and experts committed to advancing a shared goal: safety and belonging for all. We hope to supercharge the field of hate-fueled violence prevention and disrupt the normalization of hate.
Keep updated on our progress here or reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dignity.us is a bipartisan citizens’ initiative to address hate-fueled violence in America, starting by listening across all states, territories, and tribal lands for insights and ideas about the challenge and path forward.

A rising tide of hate-fueled violence in America is causing unspeakable loss, pain, and grief. Americans are living in fear when they pray, work, learn, vote, and more.
Dignity.us is a citizens’ initiative to address this crisis together, and we’d like to invite you to be part of it by sharing your ideas, testimonials, and suggestions for people we should learn from most. Our purpose is not to reinvent wheels. It is to uncover the hope already being produced.
We also understand that the country doesn't have the luxury of time in confronting these matters. So we will get started now, beginning with an exhaustive national search for insights and solutions.
And we will ensure that this input comes from Americans of every region, race, faith, ethnicity, and ideology – and spans those who have suffered the effects of this violence; researchers and experts who who have studied the problem; social innovators and advocates leading the way with bold and tested ideas; philanthropists committed to allocating resources to their implementation and scale; and those who have left groups affiliated with hatred and violence and become a part of the solution.
By early 2023, we will turn our findings into a country-wide response that greatly expands the scale of effective community-based innovations – and helps to mobilize and sustain a united front that transcends our differences.
We understand this effort comes at a time of cynicism about America’s ability to confront its largest challenges. But we also know that Americans of goodwill are already working to prove it’s possible in this case.
Our best hope lies in tapping their ingenuity, supercharging their successes, and building our shared future on what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called “the solid rock of human dignity.”
