CWU Fully Supports the Circle of Protection Statement authored by Bread for the World

As Christian women we are responsive to Jesus’ call for his followers to serve “the least of these” (Matthew 25:45)– the poor and marginalized. We join in solidarity with other faith organizations in the Circle of Protection. Together, we challenge our government to prioritize issues of hunger and poverty in the states and abroad. Specifically, we challenge prospective presidential candidates for the 2016 election to release statements on how they propose to help hungry and poor people. We hope that this challenge will encourage more conversation and political action so that we as a country can responsibly, creatively, and faithfully address the needs of those who need most.
