Human Relations Day - Overview
Your Gift Today . . . Helps To Overcome Injustice and Empowers
"I feel more empowered. I feel like I will be more capable now of going home and initiating a meaningful movement."
—LINDSAY UHLINGER, Seminar Participant, Wofford College, Spartanburg, S.C.
your GIFT MAKES CHANGE POSSIBLE
Because of a Human Relations Day grant, United Methodists of all ages travel to Washington, D.C., where about 30 seminars on national and international affairs per year take place at the United Methodist building across from the U.S. Capitol.
The high-impact seminars date back more than half a century with luminaries such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Hubert Humphrey. The sessions empower and equip participants to put their faith together with action steps to change their world.
After each group chooses a topic — poverty and homelessness, human trafficking, immigration, environmental justice — seminar designer Susan Burton tailors a unique learning experience.
"The program," she said, "offers us the opportunity to increase our knowledge of ourselves and our faith, increase our knowledge of injustices impacting our brothers and sisters in our own communities and throughout the world, and identify new ways to use our voices — staying awake and keeping watch."
Please give generously on Human Relations Day.
