Methodists United For Peace With Justice
Methodists United For Peace With Justice (MUPWJ) is an educational and advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C. Their formation grew out of the Foundry United Methodist Church's Foundry Peace Mission to support the UMC's Council of Bishops pastoral letter "In Defense of Creation: The Nuclear Crisis and a Just Peace". Later it evolved to be ecumenical in nature in both membership and glocal issues. The fight against nuclear proliferation of arms and testing makes up the majority of the records. Other peace issues, however, are still an important segment of the collection such as non-violent pacifism, poverty, especially children and youth, along with changing priorities in the U.S. federal budget.
