Mark your calendar: Fast for Families will be back in Washington, D.C., following a year-long campaign to gain comprehensive immigration reform.
Over the past several months, advocates have embarked on a nationwide road trip – Fast for Families Across America – to visit more than 100 congressional districts and engage ordinary Americans in a dialogue about our broken immigration system. At every stop, activists have encouraged communities to fast and pray. And they've pushed members of Congress to act on comprehensive immigration reform.
On April 8, the bus tour will swing through Chantilly, Va., just outside Washington, D.C. CWA President Larry Cohen will join CWAers and other activists in rallying outside the home office of Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.).
The next day, April 9, activists will return to the National Mall, sending a strong message to Representatives and Senators at the U.S. Capitol.
