Evangelical Leaders Join March for Innovation Social Media Campaign

May 23, 2013

​WASHINGTON, D.C. — National evangelical leaders will join with the March for Innovation (#iMarch) campaign this afternoon for an hourlong Twitter town hall on immigration reform. Starting at 4 p.m. EDT, leaders will discuss the ongoing Pray for Reform campaign and why the evangelical community stands for reform.

During the town hall, evangelical leaders also will call on their senators and representatives to pass immigration reform centered on biblical principles and answer questions. They will urge fellow Christians to contact their representatives in Congress via Twitter, Facebook or phone and share their support for reform.

The March for Innovation, which began yesterday, will be the largest virtual march on Washington in support of comprehensive immigration reform. Sponsored by the Partnership for a New American Economy, the march is bringing together business leaders, immigrants, evangelicals and activists across the political spectrum to promote meaningful reform of our broken immigration system.
