The Pledge Bank will be updated here in the next few hours.Pledge is a combination of pledges you've sent in and some facilitated by Action Heroes in-house Annie Zaidi , Pallavi Sen.

These pledges can be written on the placard that you bring along to the #SafeCityPledge in your city

You can carry your own pledges of course- that's the point. The pledge bank shared on the blog is to gently nudge us in the direction. You can write your own pledge on an A4 size paper/ a chart paper. it's upto you. You can even print it out. Please make the pledges in both english and the language spoken in your city 
( hindi. kannada. bangla. marathi. gujarati - )

Report to duty at the location as specified at sharp 4 30 pm.
Come alone. Bring a friend/ your organisation/ collective/ family/ everyone around you.
Doesn't matter if we are 5 or 500.  Make the pledge even if it's just you.

4 30 - 5: 00 pm  Stand with your pledge. Face the street. The passersby.
5:00 - 5 : 30 pm - Walk slowly as a group with your pledge.
5: 30 - 6 : 00 pm - one by one Read your pledge aloud.


Guideline :

1. Come painted. Dented. Celebrated 
2. Bring your placard. There will be extra placards but it would be great to have passersby involved and carrying the placard too
3. When you hold your SafeCityPledge on the placard- make eye contact with passersby. stand tall. arched back. ( Action Hero Manifesto)

Start the new year with a promise to make your city safe.
Imagine your city. Dream It. Pledge it
