Description

The Orlando Ministerial Association's resolution on lunch counter demonstrations. The resolution, passed on April 21, 1960, supported non-violent demonstrations at segregated lunch counters in Orlando stores. According to the document, the association believed that the concepts of the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man defied segregation, and that non-violent demonstrations were an effective way of highlighting the immorality of segregation in a peaceful way. The association also resolved that Florida Governor Thomas Leroy Collins be commended for calling out the immorality of stores with segregated lunch counters. The resolution lastly called on all religious people in the community to refuse to patronize any store practicing segregation on its premises.
