Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

Quote of the Day: Matthew 25:31-35

 

“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in....'" —Matthew 25:31-35

 Today, as the Senate votes on comprehensive immigration reform, Evangelical Immigration Table members Bread for the World and Christian Community Development Association will gather at the U.S. Capitol to pray for reform that upholds the values of human dignity, family unity, and respect for the rule of law.

Please take a moment at this critical time to tell Congress that everyone deserves a place at the table.  Tell your U.S. senators to  1) support any amendment that addresses the root causes of undocumented immigration, such as extreme poverty in countries of origin; and 2) oppose any amendments that would make it more difficult for undocumented immigrants to earn a path to citizenship or would prohibit authorized immigrants and their citizen family members from receiving needed assistance such as WIC, SNAP, and EITC benefits. Call toll-free at 800-826-3688, or send an email today.
