Take Action: Systemic Racism and Discrimination during COVID-19

The effects of the public health crisis and the unfolding economic crisis are inextricably intertwined with structural inequities and systems of oppression that value some lives more than others, and disregard the sacredness of all creation.

As United Methodists, we must resist all forms of oppression and advocate for justice. Right now, Congress is making decisions that could either address or perpetuate these structural injustices. We must ensure that the immediate relief measures prioritize the needs of those most severely impacted by the pandemic. We must also advocate for policies that will rebuild our economy and our society in ways that more clearly reflect God’s vision of health, wholeness, justice and peace.
