We are…just human.
“After we put our labels and differences aside, the one thing
we have in common is that we are are just human.”
I am . . . just human is a movement founded by Judge Rachel and
Dr. Dorsha in 2017 to encourage people to step away from the labels
that have been used to define us and instead choose to
see everyone under the unifying umbrella of humanity.
I am aware.
I recognize that there are injustices in the world and biases towards people with differences; different races and cultures, different genders, different sexualities, different age groups, and different economic backgrounds. I am aware of this, but I recognize everyone as equal.
I am accepting.
I do not discriminate against anyone because of their differences. I accept each individual and the unique characteristics that make them who they are. I understand that sometimes we do not always agree, but I will not judge another person for what they believe and what they stand for.
I am resilient.
I understand that everyone will not have the capability of accepting differences. I may have had horrible things said and done to me, but I will not let other’s ignorance deter me from achieving my goals and uplifting my fellow man.
I am compassionate.
I will treat everyone with equal respect. I will offer a helping hand and a caring heart to those in need. I believe that everyone has the potential to be great, and it is my desire to motivate them to do so.
I am noble.
I will stand up against the injustices of racism, sexism, discrimination against disabilities, and the inclusion of the LGBTQ community. I will use my resources to help the community and I will actively promote programs and policies that are for the good of the people. I will use my voice and, if it’s in my power, my vote to become a change agent for the world.
I am growing.
I know that I am a work in progress. I know that there will be times that I struggle. Even through hardships, I will continue to fight for what’s right and I will devote my time into becoming the person I was meant to be. I will love myself and above all, I will recognize I am . . . just human.
It’s time to start the conversation.
We realize that no one is perfect. Once we strip away all of the labels that divide us, we have the opportunity to rejoice in our humanity. At the end of the day, we are all humans and deserve equality and access to basic human necessities:
