With us today are leaders involved with Prison Fellowship, started by the late Chuck Colson, a man transformed by leaders of this breakfast. Today Prison Fellowship ministers to more than 300,000 prisoners across America to help others like Alice Johnson and Matthew Charles, who we saw Tuesday night, transform their lives through the mercy and grace of God.

America is a nation that believes in redemption. Every day the people in this room demonstrate the power of faith to transform lives, heal communities and lift up the forgotten. Some of those in this room are among the Muslim and Christian faith leaders, from Minnesota who partnered to send millions of meals to Somalia last year. Also with us today are Catholics, evangelicals and members of the Jewish faith who help build homes for our fellow citizens through Habitat for Humanity. As president, I will always cherish, honor and protect the believers who uplift our communities and sustain our nation to ensure that people of faith can always contribute to our society. My administration has taken historic action to protect religious liberty.
