Fast for Families — a national action highlighting the moral urgency of immigration reform — launched on November 12. Thursday, December 12, will mark the 31st day of this campaign. Tens of thousands across the nation have fasted. Your prayers and solidarity fasts have strengthened and galvanized the immigration reform movement.
Now we need your help. On December 12, the House of Representatives will conclude their calendar year. But it has not acted yet to keep immigrant families together. Let’s tell our leaders that we are growing stronger each day and we expect them to act now. Here are 3 easy actions that you can take today!
1. Call Speaker John Boehner
Pick up your cell phone and dial (202)-225-0600 and let him know that you support the Fast for Families, stand with families, and are watching him closely. Tell him: “As a member of the Asian American community, I am calling upon you, Speaker Boehner, to have a heart for immigrant families and put a bill to the floor for a vote!”
2. Snap a Photo of Your Actions and Support
Send us a picture or video message of your support those who are fasting and for immigration reform. Also, would you consider fasting for a meal on Thursday, December 12?
Please email pictures or messages to Emily Kessel with the subject title: #Fast4Families. You can also message a video clip to youtube.org/nakasec or tweet us @nakasec or post atwww.facebook.com/nakasec
