On July 6, 2012, Circle of Protection leaders invited the presidential candidates — President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney — to submit short video statements.

"We believe that this presidential campaign should include a clear focus on what each candidate proposes to do to provide help and opportunity for hungry and poor people in the United States and around the world," they wrote.

The leaders emphasized that God holds nations accountable for how those Jesus called "the least of these" (Matthew 25:45) are treated.

The Circle of Protection is composed of more than 65 heads of denominations, relief and development agencies, and other Christian organizations representing a wide array of churches in the U.S.A.

The Circle of Protection does not support, oppose or in any way endorse either of these presidential candidates.
