Human Rights Investment Policies

The United Methodist Church commends its General Board of Pension and Health Benefits for developing investment policies that address human rights violations around the world.

The United Methodist Church likewise encourages heeding the call of indigenous peoples, indigenous Christians and United Methodist mission personnel to oppose injustice in all places of oppression, and to seriously consider using non-violent economic means when appropriate and effective.

The United Methodist Church opposes all efforts by governments to suppress legitimate means by which churches can non-violently resist violations of human and civil rights.
