Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Rev. Gabriel Salguero

"Tenemos un problema. If we don't speak out there will come a time when the rocks cry out."

—Rev. Gabriel Salguero, president of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition, speaking about the need for comprehensive, compassionate immigration reform during Bread for the World's 2014 National Gathering.

Bread for the World views global progress against poverty as an exodus from hunger. International migration is part of this exodus—as people move across national borders to escape poverty and improve their livelihoods. Once in the United States, immigrants typically improve their economic condition, but their legal status means they are blocked from realizing their economic potential and making full contributions to the U.S. economy. Immigration reform can change this, and reduce hunger and poverty. Email your representative and tell him or her to support compassionate, comprehensive immigration reform.
