MEDIA ADVISORY

TODAY at 2:00 PM: Faith Leaders Condemn Trump-Pence Ticket for Hateful,
Divisive Rhetoric Ahead of Mike Pence’s Campaign Stop at Liberty University

Donald Trump has continually disparaged Mexicans, Muslims, “the blacks,” and women throughout his campaign. He’s played to harmful, racist stereotypes and was caught making degrading and disgusting comments about women.

Trump isn’t a role model for our children, nor is he fit to lead our nation.

Mike Pence refuses to condemn Trump, and instead is willing to look the other way to further his own political career. This shows a failure of leadership, and a true lack of conviction.

TODAY, join Faith Leaders as we hold Trump and Pence accountable for the hateful, divisive comments we’ve heard this election and call on other members of the faith community to rescind their support for the GOP candidates.

WHAT:  Faith Leader respond to Pence campaign event at Liberty University

WHO: Deborah Fikes, Rev. Dr. Peter Heltzel, Anne Gibbons, Marlena Graves, Rev. Dr. Soong-Chan Rah, and Burns Strider.

WHEN: Wednesday, October 12th at 2:00 PM EST
