Tomorrow, for the first time since the start of the Trump administration, leaders from Christian families across the theological and political spectrum will speak with one voice - to oppose budget cuts that would harm vulnerable people and devastate families living in poverty, Jim Wallis writes in Sojourners.

We will be making this joint statement under the banner of the Circle of Protection, a broad coalition of leaders from all the families of US Christianity that was founded in 2011 in service of the biblical mandate to protect poor and vulnerable people. While individual members of the Circle have raised their voices in opposition to harmful budget cuts and legislation that the Trump administration and Congress have proposed - notably many of us came together for a powerful prayerful event outside the Capitol Building in late March for just such a purpose - this will be the first time that the entire Circle is making such a joint statement.
