A New Church Anti-Slavery Society

A NEW ANTI-SLAVERY SOCIETY     ” The readers of the Liberator saw, last week, an account of a Convention recently assembled at Worcester, to take action in regard to slavery. …. The meeting proceeded to organize a Society, entitled, ‘The Church Anti-Slavery Society of the United States,’ and to adopt a Preamble, Declaration of Principles and Constitution, and also two series of Resolutions, all of which were published as above….. The members of the new Society …. wish their churches, and the churches of the country at large, to be vigorously, radically, effectively anti-slavery; and they have set a good example by publicly stating the ground they themselves occupy, expressed in genuine and thorough-going anti-slavery language….”                      (Liberator, March 25, 1859, pg 2)
