A convention of Northern abolitionists met in Philadelphia's Adelphi Building in December 1833 to form a governing body that would seek the abolition of slavery in the United States. There were 61 delegates to the December meeting, of which 21 were Quakers. The group named itself the American Anti-Slavery Society and charged writer and journalist William Lloyd Garrison with writing the new group's organizing document. Garrison's bold document calls slave owners sinners and "man-stealers," calls for immediate and total abolition, and declares the society to be pacifist in its objectives. In July 1834 a series of pro-slavery riots swept Philadelphia in reaction to the new group's aims
