Clergy and Laity Concerned
Fundraising mailing for Clergy and Laity Concerned (CALC) and its work to stop bank loans to South Africa, which support the white minority-ruled regime. In the past year alone, over 1,000 people, many of them schoolchildren, have been murdered in the streets by police, and thousands more have been imprisoned for demanding majority rule. The mailing says bank policies that prop up apartheid also contribute to suffering in our own country. In June, CALC helped launch a national campaign to stop U.S. banks from financing South African racism and to release specific South African political prisoners. The mailing discusses the New York Conference of the United Methodist Church, the Furriers Joint Council, Manufacturers Hanover Trust, human rights, and the First National Bank of Atlanta.
