What is R-E-S-P-E-C-T?

It's more than a clever little ditty by Aretha Franklin.
It's a living policy.
It's a kinder way to relate to each other.
It requires us all to step up and do our part.
It's thinking before we act or speak or type.
It's considering how our actions affect others.
It's thinking about how other people want and deserve to be treated.
It's about raising for the bar for the way we treat each other.

Each of us has a part to play in making respect a priority. Here are resources to support that:
