Faith leaders urge Congress to pass coronavirus relief before election

Television news story about the virtual 12-hour prayer vigil for COVID relief that Bread for the World helped organize. The story, which features Bread President and CEO Rev. Eugene Cho, has aired on more than 70 local news broadcasts across the country. 

“One million human lives created in the image of God have been lost,” said Eugene Cho, the president of Bread for the World, a Christian anti-hunger organization. Cho said the millions of Americans who are hungry, unemployed and homeless can’t wait until after the election for the next round of relief. “We have to call our leaders, the White House, our Congress, to not be naïve and ignorant, or to simply play political games,” he said.
