Children (and all human beings) do not belong in cages!
A message from the Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church
Global Ministries encourages churches to give in support of the global migration Advance #3022144.
The mission agency is also encouraging churches and individuals to make Sunday, June 30, a Sunday of solidarity for suffering children.
The United Methodist Church opposes “immigration policies that separate family members from each other or that include detention of families with children,” according to the Social Principles. In the United Methodist Book of Resolutions, the church calls on the government to end indefinite detention and the incarceration of children.
The United Methodist Board of Church and Society is calling on United Methodists to tell Congress and President Donald Trump to end child detention and family separation.
The social action agency of the church encourages everyone — including children and youth — to write letters to the government calling for immediate reform.
