Message from the Executive Director: Tired of politicians who will say anything to get elected? The Pro-Truth Pledge reverses the tide of lies by calling on politicians – and everyone else – to commit to truth-oriented behaviors. Take the pledge, demand that your elected representatives do so, and encourage your friends to take it!
Mission Statement: The Pro-Truth Pledge is devoted to fighting lies in politics, and other life areas. The purpose of the pledge is to change the incentive structure for public figures, establishing rewards for truth-oriented activities and penalties for sharing misinformation. It targets politicians and other public figures, with the intent of committing them to spreading accurate information as informed by behavioral science research. Another goal is to get ordinary citizens to take the pledge, and advocate for others and especially public figures to sign the pledge, as well as monitor them for violations.
Why was your organization launched? To fight lies in politics and other life areas.
What are the organization’s goals for this year? To get as many signatures as possible for the Pro-Truth Pledge.
