Samuel Rodriguez, Jr.

The quintessential Civil Rights issue of the 21st Century is Life. For without life one cannot exhibit liberty and without liberty one cannot pursue happiness. Accordingly, Personhood USA stands today as a firewall of righteousness and justice thwarting the assault on the fundamental God ordained value of life by a culture of death, relativism and apathy. As President of America's largest Hispanic faith organization, the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, the Hispanic National Association of Evangelicals, I am honored to join Walter B. Hoye II, President of the California Civil Rights Foundation, in advocacy of a life ethos that protects and defends the simple truth that Christ came to give us Life and Life abundantly.
