Hispanic Evangelicals Launch National Voter Registration Campaign, Fuerza 2010
WASHINGTON, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- America's largest Hispanic Christian Organization, The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), The Hispanic National Association of Evangelicals, launched this week a National voter registration campaign focusing on registering Hispanic faith voters via local evangelical churches.
"Hispanic Christian voters will stand as the firewall against moral relativism, spiritual apathy and cultural decay. Without a doubt, Hispanic faith voters will reconcile a platform of righteousness and justice in the 2010 mid-term elections," explained Rev. John Murillo, Campaign Director.
In partnership with United in Purpose, a non-partisan, not-for-profit national coalition of Americans actively advancing the traditional values of our Founding Fathers, NHCLC will work with over 30,500 Hispanic evangelical congregations, 52 denominations and various state and local chapter networks in order to increase the number of registered Hispanic faith voters.
"Approximately 10 million Hispanics voted in the 2008 Presidential election. Our community embodies the values of our founding fathers. We desire to vote our Christian world view and frame the narrative of righteousness and renewal in the public square. At the end of the day, it's not about the elephant or the donkey but rather the lamb's agenda that counts," explained NHCLC President, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez.
The Campaign will target swing states with significant Hispanic populations by registering both on-line and in local churches. Hispanics can register to vote on-line via the votenhclc.com web site or by sending a text to 510-771-7974.
The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference is the Hispanic National Association of Evangelicals unifying, serving and representing the Hispanic Born Again Community through 30,434 member churches by reconciling the vertical and horizontal of the Christian Message via the 7 Directives of Life, Family, Great Commission, Stewardship, Justice, Education and Youth.
