Health and Wellness Quadrennial Priority #1 - Church Women United (CWU) acknowledges the decades long, historic impact of racism, discrimination and, poverty in widening the health and wellness gap on the most vulnerable citizens: Blacks, Hispanic/LatinX, Native Americans, rural populations, immigrants, and working poor are likely to die, endure greater suffering and experience higher rates of almost every kind of disease or illness the medical industry tracks. We face again this inconvenient truth as our nation contends with a fast-moving, border-crossing, color-blind and invisible COVID-19 enemy virus.
Climate Stewardship Quadrennial Priority #2 - Church Women United believes that our earth is a gift from God entrusted to us to care for. We believe it is our responsibility to pay attention to and offer remedy where the growing climate issues are concerned. In particular we support the idea of Environmental Equity. We affirm the science that informs us. We are committed to raising awareness and educating when we can about environmental issues.
