United Methodist Women
Resources for Racial Justice
The Women's Division is pleased to share with you Resources for Racial Justice: Tools for UMW Leaders. It offers you many ways to get involved in implementing the Charter for Racial Justice, including Bible studies, worship services, programs, workshops, displays, issues and action ideas.
During 2006 United Methodist Women celebrated the Charter for Racial Justice.
Twenty-five years after the Charter was adopted by General Conference and more than 50 years since its creation, United Methodist Women are actively exploring what the Charter means in today's world and how they can re-commit themselves to racial justice. These resources are an important way to explore their biblical and theological roots, and their current realities, and to discern how they can take faithful action for justice.
The resources in this booklet have been created during the process of the Racial Justice Program's work with United Methodist Women. We thank you for your insights. The result is designed for use at the local, district, conference and national level. Feel free to reproduce materials citing the source. Most materials will also be available on the Women's Division website at http://gbgm-umc.org/umw for further circulation.
