New Zealand is a great nation built on the foundation that all of us will be assured the same rights before the law. Hobson’s
Pledge believes in the importance of moving forward as one to allow us to focus on what unites us as a nation and overcome
the challenges that would seek to divide us.
We will continue to advocate for equality and unity. Our focus is to build awareness and to prevent legislation, policy and
regulations that will differentiate New Zealanders based upon their ethnicity or ancestry.
It is only through being informed and understanding the truth that we can have honest discussions and achieve the best
outcomes for those that are in need. We invite you to take the time to understand the issues that are facing our nation. It is
through this knowledge and understanding that we can move forward as one.
