In June 2007, Democratic presidential candidates joined Reverend Jim Wallis (second from right) for a public forum on faith, values, and poverty in Washington, DC. Sojourners, the largest national network of "progressive" Christians founded by Wallis, sponsored the event in which former Sen. John Edwards (far left), Sen. Hillary Clinton (second from left), and Sen. Barack Obama (far right) attended.
