Women organized for mission gathered for sisterhood and rallied for immigrants and an end to private prisons April 28, United Methodist Women Day at General Conference.
Wearing their conference United Methodist Women shirts, the women kicked off their special day with a “meet-up” chat outside the convention center before joining the rally sponsored with the United Methodist Task Force on Immigration. The women also gathered around the dinner hour for discussions and to share mission fervor.
About 400 people participated in the joint demonstration, including more than 200 United Methodist Women members. The action gave United Methodist Women members an opportunity to participate in a national public witness on an issue that touches their local ministries on a regular basis.
