Liberal Christians Band Together to Aid Health Reform

Their efforts are much-needed.

Taking their cue directly from Jesus, conservative Christian media stars have been at the forefront of efforts to thwart health reform. Today, progressive religious leaders launched a campaign to help counter the religious right-wing’s crusade to deprive Americans of quality heath care.

The campaign, called "40 Days for Health Reform" kicks off with a nationally aired ad featuring religious leaders advocating for reform.

According to Faith in Public Life, one of the groups involved in the campaign, the ad will be followed by: 

• Monday, August 10: New National TV Ad Released Featuring Local Evangelical, Catholic & Mainline Pastors and People of Faith
• Tuesday, August 11: In-District Prayer Events Nationwide Reaching 100+ Members of Congress
• Wednesday, August 19: **Major National Event to Be Announced on the Call**
• Friday through Sunday, August 28-30: Nationwide Health Care Sermon Weekend
• September 1-18: Large-Scale Meetings in Key States with Members of Congress, A Major Event with Local Leaders in DC the Week of September 14, Plus Prayer Rallies, Call-in to Congress Days & Online Campaigns
