The Beloved Community Pledge

All Douglass Products and Technology are aligned with The Beloved Community Pledge and the Beloved Community License.

The Beloved Community License and the Beloved Community Pledge are New Ethical frameworks for Technology, Products and Corporations based on Martin Luther King's "Beloved Community"

As Activist for The Beloved Community, we are committed to building a modern future of: Peace, Love, and Fulfillment for all. In this new modern World, Violence, Poverty, Racism, Sexism, Prisons, and Militarism cannot survive.

I recognize the humanity of the multitudes who are oppressed, persecuted, incarcerated and in struggle.

I declare that violence, poverty, racism, sexism, incarceration, surveillance, militarism and environmental destruction cannot persist.

I recognize that reparations and atonement are part of a needed healing process for our shared humanity.

I pursue a world of Peace, Love and fulfillment for all.

I make change through nonviolence and radical love for all and for our sacred planet.

I commit to the inspired change needed to create a more humanely just and coherent future.

I commit to becoming aware of those forces that seek to undermine the Beloved Community.

Whenever possible I will only buy and use products that are aligned with this pledge.

DOUGLASS IS A PUBLIC BENEFITS CORP WITH A MISSION TO BRING "THE BELOVED COMMUNITY" INTO REALITY.

Bodhisattva Prayer For Humanity

May I be a guard for those who need protection

A guide for those on the path

A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood

May I be a lamp in the darkness

A resting place for the weary

A healing medicine for all who are sick

A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles

And for the boundless multitudes of living beings

May I bring sustenance and awakening

Enduring like the earth and sky

Until all beings are freed from sorrow

And all are awakened.

-Shantideva
