Today our former Secretary-Treasurer Eliseo Medina and other faith, civil rights, immigrant and labor leaders started fasting. They're fasting (and only consuming water) as a personal commitment, and as a way to reach the hearts of members of Congress and push them to pass immigration reform.
This movement is bigger than any single one of us, so fasters like Barbara and Eliseo will be joined by groups and activists across the country who are prepared to make sacrifices for the passage of immigration reform that keeps families together.
