Circle of Protection for a Moral Budget

A pledge by church leaders from diverse theological and political beliefs who have come together to form a Circle of Protection around programs that serve the most vulnerable in our nation and around the world.

Our Voices of Immigration campaign seeks to bring the stories of immigrants and those who work with and live among them to the public attention. To commemorate Mother's Day, we have this musical tribute to immigrant mothers: "Lovely To Me (Immigrant Mother)," by Taiyo Na. Thanks to the artist and director for their permission.

Honored by Governor David A. Paterson and the State of New York as a trailblazing Asian-American leader in May 2010, Taiyo Na is a singer, songwriter, MC, and producer. Visit his Web site: www.taiyona.com.

The video was directed by Gary San Angel, whom you can check out at www.componentgeek.com.

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)
