I am Charles Finney. I believe we need to change our society. we need to help others first and practice our religion.
we believe that we need to connect with nature and question our society and government.
Everyone needs to stop drinking hard liquor. it results in criminal action, poverty, and violence.
Afterwards Americans made an effort to stop consuming so much alcohol. In the 1930s it became banned.
We need to change the conditions of the prisons and make new faculties for the mentally ill and children.
States funded mental hospitals. Schools were made for the children and prisons were corrected to stop overcrowding. Also Prisons were offered schooling.
There was an increase in the state education budget. teachers salaries grew and women's colleges opened.
we need to revise the quality and availability of public education.
The Declaration of Sentiments was passed in 1848. this made changes to the laws such as women were allowed to not get married or have a full time job,
we believed traditional gender roles should be abolished. women serve just as important as men in society. it is imnportant to have individualism and equality.
We urged the nation to put a complete end of slavery. slavery was seen as a mortal and against the foundations of liberty.
The conditions and pay for labor were not sufficient. people railed for 5 day weeks and shorter days or work with a better pay.
Canditions and treatment slowly got better. labor unions began to rally for fair treatment of employers.
we created the underground railroad which help slaves to escape. this was one of the main causes the civil war is over.
