Advocating for Justice
The United Methodist Church has a long history of advocating for social justice.
During university, John & Charles Wesley and their Oxford 'Holy Club' visited the local prison and tutored neighborhood children.
The early Methodists expressed their opposition to societal ills such as slavery, smuggling, inhumane prison conditions, alcohol abuse, and child labor.
Today United Methodists work, march and pray for racial justice, environmental care, and fair treatment for everyone.
