Evangelical Leaders Urge Immigration Reform on Day of Prayer and Action 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — As the House considers its next steps on immigration reform, hundreds of evangelicals and evangelical leaders from across the country will mobilize on Capitol Hill July 24 to urge action on immigration reform.

As a capstone to the Pray for Reform campaign, participants will bring their prayers for lawmakers and for broad immigration reform directly to congressional offices.

During a press conference, worship service and meetings with congressional offices, national and local evangelical leaders will discuss commonsense reform that reflects the Evangelical Immigration Table’s principles.

Their efforts highlight the unified support across the evangelical spectrum for reform that emphasizes both accountability and compassion — and the momentum that will span the weeks and months ahead.
