As our country prepares to make important choices about who will lead it and what direction our nation will take, we come together as immigrant Christians to offer a vision for the future that we believe is reflective of God’s grace and love for all people, including undocumented immigrants. Too often, we hear heard harsh words about immigrants and immigration when, in fact, immigrants come to the United States to work and enrich this country economically and culturally and at great personal risk and sacrifice. As Christian leaders, we embrace our diverse immigrant communities and speak out for immigration policies and actions that reflect God’s heart and ours.
Our call to action is firmly rooted in the Word of God and informed by our experience as immigrants. Our goal is the biblical vision of the beloved community.

We will tell the truth about immigrants to our country, and we will hold leaders to these high standards when it comes to public debate. We are proud of our immigrant heritage, and we will speak out when immigrants are denigrated or scapegoated in national discourse. In all these ways, we stand together.

Worldwide, maternal and child malnutrition causes millions of deaths each year. In some countries, it holds entire generations back from reaching their economic potential.

Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $250 million for global nutrition in the fiscal year 2020 budget.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
