The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) is launching a series of nationwide campaigns to protect the sanctity of human life, defend religious liberty and advocate for biblical justice.
The campaigns, drawn from the NHCLC’s life, religious liberty and biblical justice directives, are a collaborative effort with some of the most influential denominations, ministries and organizations in the U.S.
“This is one of the largest efforts the NHCLC has launched to mobilize people to make a difference in these issues,” said Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of NHCLC. “It has never been more important in our nation’s history to end the practice of abortion, defend our right to practice and live our faith freely and to reconcile Billy Graham’s message of salvation with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s prophetic dream of biblical justice. And as one of the fastest-growing communities in America, Hispanics have a special role to play in it.”
NHCLC is launching the campaigns during Hispanic Heritage Month, the time when the U.S. recognizes the contributions of Hispanics and Latinos to American culture. One of the fastest-growing ethnic groups in the U.S., Hispanics have strong religious beliefs and are playing an increasingly more important role in local and national elections.
Each of the campaigns, listed below, will be multifaceted and will include a social media and digital component. NHCLC will produce videos, podcasts, blogs, vlogs and memes while simultaneously producing television content to air on various Christian television networks.
As the nation’s leading Hispanic pro-life organization, the NHCLC leads the way in mobilizing the Hispanic-American community in the protection of the sanctity of life. In 2016, the organization traveled across America championing “life,” and as a result, 66% of Latino evangelicals voted in favor of this sacred value at the presidential level.
With its Beautiful Life campaign, “the NHCLC will mobilize the largest network of Latino evangelical congregations to end abortion in America in our generation,” Rev. Rodriguez said.
The mobilization element includes a call to action for Christians to make a commitment to pray and to advocate for pro-life causes.
NHCLC’s partners for the Beautiful Life campaign are World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio; Free Chapel in Gainesville, Georgia and Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas. To learn more about NHCLC’s Beautiful Life campaign, visit beautiful-life.us.
