Resolution On Lynching And Mob Violence

1. That we reaffirm our unchanging condemnation of mob violence in all forms.

2. That our pastors be urged to preach from time to time upon the sanctity of human life and of civil rights under orderly government to the end and that a wholesome respect for law and order may be created and maintained.

3. That our people as citizens be urged to demand the faithful performance of duty by all officers for the protection of the lives and rights of all accused or condemned persons that may be in their charge.

4. That as a people we stand firmly for the orderly processes of justice in all cases and give to all officers of the law our support and commendation in the performance of their duties.

5. That we shall not be satisfied or content until lynchings shall cease and mob violence shall be completely banished.
