A diverse group of evangelicals is joining forces to reclaim a faith tradition it says has become dominated by older, conservative white men who are blindly loyal to President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

Thirty-nine evangelical leaders released a declaration on Wednesday that attempts to disrupt the narrative that evangelicals as a whole are white, right-wing Trump supporters who are indifferent about social justice.

[...] Forty-five years later, Jim Wallis and Ron Sider, two evangelical leaders who were present at that 1973 meeting, convened another gathering of evangelicals concerned about social change. The meeting was held from Sept. 13 to 15 in Chicago and brought about 40 leaders together in a room to discuss how to respond to a crisis in evangelicalism that they claim “jeopardizes the reputation and witness of the Christian church.”
