(Washington, D.C.) - The LIBRE Initiative (LIBRE), a nonprofit and nonpartisan, national grassroots organization that works to promote the principles of economic freedom within the U.S. Hispanic community, will host the first in a series of LIBRE National Prayer Breakfasts. The event features musical guest, Rene Gonzalez and brings together local elected officials as well as hundreds of leaders of the faith communities to discuss civic engagement and economic opportunity.

The Prayer Breakfast will take place in Lake Buena Vista, FL on Saturday, September 28th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and hosts the Honorable Rick Scott, Governor of Florida.

John Mendez, National Director of Faith Initiative for The LIBRE Initiative released the following statement:

"Faith communities throughout the country face many challenges today. Many see a world where religious liberty is being compromised and freedom of religious expression is being marginalized, that is why The LIBRE National Prayer Breakfast Series aims to bring together pastors and people of faith from the Hispanic community to explore how they can effectively deliver their critical message, and how they can continue to grow their communities in the face of daily challenges. We look forward to joining people from the Orlando area and around the state in prayerful discussion and committed fellowship."
