Protect Others

Trying to establish our own personal sense of security in life can only get us so far. We must also work toward protecting others. When everyone is secure, we all benefit. This means that working toward a just, equitable society; cultivating trust in our communities and relationships; and making choices that prioritize the safety of others as much as ourselves are as important as buckling our seatbelts.
At its core, security is deeply interdependent with equity. When people are treated fairly, have equal access to resources, and are free from the threat of racism and bigotry, they are better able to enjoy flourishing, healthy lives – and society as a whole is healthier and more secure for everyone.

Protecting others means:

  • Building a foundation of trust
  • Using empathy to learn where you can help
  • Taking steps to care for your community
  • Making safe decisions to ensure the wellbeing of all
