Raise your voice.
Whatever the changes to policy, our call and our commitment to putting love in action remain the same. We will still stand.
Will you stand with us?
One crucial way to stand with us today is by speaking up to your elected officials.
Congress has the power to act and often make key decisions that affect vulnerable people around the world and in the United States. When you speak up and contact your elected officials, they are more likely to understand and support positions that would help people we care about.
Take Action Today
Immigration Thought Leaders
Convening a Christian conscience on behalf of those in vulnerable situations is a core call of World Relief and an integral way that we empower local churches to serve and engage. We consider it an essential task to engage the American church and remind leaders and congregations alike that our Christian faith should compel us to seek justice and mercy for those who experience vulnerability and suffering. In increasingly divisive times, we are proud of our leading role as a thoughtful pro-immigrant voice in the U.S. evangelical community.
Our commitment to advocate on behalf of and alongside the oppressed is based on the example of Jesus. We believe that such advocacy is an key part of service and faith-in-action.
To that end, the World Relief Advocacy Team seeks to:
Address structural inequality & violence
Build a movement for justice
Deepen empathy and understanding
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute."
— Proverbs 31:8
