An excerpt from the introduction of Latter-day Saints and Justice for Workers:
"LDS scripture attests to the importance God places on caring for the poor, thereby supporting families and communities. Because of the practical nature of their faith, Latter-day Saints have a history of organizing to seek solutions to temporal needs."
