Evangelicals Unite On Principles for Immigration Reform at Capitol Hill Press Conference


Several years ago, World Relief joined with other evangelical organizations in order to multiply our efforts to educate and mobilize the evangelical community for immigration reform.  This effort, known as the Evangelical Immigration Table, has been working to gather some of the country’s most recognized evangelical leaders to support immigration reform.

Tomorrow, the Table will be releasing a statement to call on Democrats and Republicans to lead our nation to a bipartisan solution for immigrants in America.  This “Evangelical Statement of Principles for Immigration Reform” has been signed by over 140 high-level evangelical leaders, many of whom are speaking out for the first time in support of immigration reform.  Signatories include bestselling Christian authors, denominational executives from almost every major evangelical denomination, presidents of Christian colleges and seminaries, and pastors of large and influential churches throughout the country.  

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at 11:30am, you will be able to see the list of signatories on www.evangelicalimmigrationtable.com and watch live on the website the press conference in Washington, DC releasing the statement.
