Resist Harm

A United Methodist movement of acceptance of all people.

As United Methodists, we are called to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves. When oppression presents itself from within our Church, we have a God-given responsibility to respond with resistance renewed and resist harm.

Resist Harm is a movement, a collection of resources, and a call to action.

    • SOLIDARITY in support of LGBTQ people and allies

    • VISIBILITY¬†to illustrate that we are a large and growing majority of United Methodists in the United States and some of the Central Conferences

    • SUPPORT¬†to help those directly experiencing harm

Each month of resistance will be themed to help organize our work and resources and keep them fresh.

Resistance Themes:
    • February – Love
    • March – Lament (Lent)
    • April – Light (Easter)
    • May – Witness (GC 2020)
