CHCI Fellows Meet with Fast for Families

View the Album

On December 6, the CHCI Fellows had the opportunity to meet the newest fasters from the Fast for Families, aimed at promoting action from legislators in regards to immigration reform. Our fellows gained unprecedented access into the fasters' plight to fix the country’s broken immigration system. Join us in support of these brave individuals who through their sacrifice are actively changing the sentiments surrounding this contested issue.

By fasting, we hope to follow the examples of Cesar Chavez, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi to touch the compassion and sensibilities of our elected leaders to address the moral crisis of an immigration system that fails to comport with our national values, our creeds and belief in justice.” - Fast for Families
