The Nation

May 28, 1985

An agency of the United Church of Christ, reversing a longstanding policy, said it has agreed to "a principle of full divestment" from U.S. corporations doing business in South Africa. And the United Methodist Church, the nation's second-largest Protestant denomination, says it is going to take a hard look at the investment policies of its national boards. Those decisions would combat apartheid, the South African government's policy of racial separation. The action by the United Church of Christ's Board of World Ministries would dispose of holdings in companies that do business in South Africa, reversing a 15-year-old policy.
