Criminal Justice Reform
The biblical ideal of justice emphasizes right relationship with God, oneself, individuals, and the entire community.
We unequivocally oppose the death penalty and urge its elimination from all criminal codes.
Moving from one place to another is a protected human right.
Immigration to the U.S.
U.S. policy has focused on enforcement, rather than addressing root causes. It is time to focus on holistic reform.
Every religious group should be able to exercise its faith free from legal, political, or economic restrictions.
Indigenous and native peoples deserve the right to their culture, spirituality, language, and tradition.
We will seek to live together in Christian community, accepting one another as Christ has accepted us.
