Sojourners is a founding partner in the Circle of Protection, a broad and diverse coalition of Christian leaders working together to protect the poor — and the programs that sustain them — in the budget debates. This year we asked all the presidential candidates — Democrat and Republican — to submit a brief video answering the question: “What would you do as president to offer help and opportunity to hungry and poor people in the United States and around the world?” So far the candidates below have responded with videos. Others, including Hillary Clinton, Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio have pledged to produce one soon.

Watch this space as we continue to post new videos when they arrive. They are listed in alphabetical order by last name.
