Christian Democrats of America Stage First Event to Support Barack Obama

Washington, DC — (October 10, 2012) — The Christian social justice movement Christian Democrats of America is staging two nationwide days of prayer this month as a show of support for President Barack Obama and the electoral process. The first of the two nationwide days of prayer was strategically planned by the group to be held the day before the second presidential debate on Monday, October 15th, 2012. The second event will be held the day before the presidential election, on Monday, November 5th, 2012. Event organizers are hoping to bring Christians and people of faith together across the country in prayer throughout the two days to express support for the President, and are asking them to pray together in churches, campaign offices, business offices, community centers, and in their own neighborhoods.

“The first nationwide day of prayer we are staging is intended to send prayers of wisdom, strength, and encouragement to the President and his family” said Founder and Executive Director of Christian Democrats of America, Christina Forrester. “The second day of prayer is to express a strong show of support for our country, a healthy voter turnout, and a fair and balanced electoral process”.

Christian Democrats of America plans to launch 10 chapters nationwide by March of 2013. One chapter has already been formed in Arizona.

“This movement has grown faster than anticipated in the last few years,” said Forrester. “That only validates the passion and commitment we feel toward spreading our message worldwide.”

The Christian Democrats of America organization is based in Washington, D.C., and is committed to reforming social injustices, helping those who can’t help themselves, and changing the perception of Christian values worldwide. The goal of CDA is to change the perception of Christianity from a religion defined by abortion and gay marriage, to one defined by the biblical values of compassion in Christianity. The social justice movement was founded in 2006, and currently has more than 10,000 supporters nationwide.
