Human Rights

Adopted by the ELCA Church Council in November of 2017, the newest ELCA social message elaborates various references in ELCA teaching and provides specific theological reasoning through a Lutheran lens. It addresses contemporary questions and summons God's people in the ELCA to renewed attention and courage, discernment and action to promote and protect human rights. You can read and download the full social message on Human Rights below.

A Spanish translation of the social message is scheduled to be released in 2018.
