Top Evangelicals Send Invites for Trump Meeting

Evangelical leaders have sent out these invitations for a June 21 meeting with presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump in New York City.

The meeting, first reported by TIME, will bring Trump face-to-face with hundreds of social conservative activists during an all-day session. There will be no prepared speeches, organizers say. Instead, Trump will field questions from attendees in a casual, conversational format.

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and Bill Dallas of United in Purpose have spearheaded the planning, and former presidential candidate Ben Carson, now a Trump supporter, will serve as part-conduit and part-emcee. The host committee of nearly 40 members is a who’s who of Christian conservative activists, including James Dobson, Ralph Reed and Pat Robertson.
