The national program “Fast for Families” came to the Philadelphia area to bring attention to the important issue of immigration reform. The new program began its efforts in the fall of 2013 at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
“Fast for Families” asks people to fast, or refrain from eating, to show their support for immigration reform. The first fast of the campaign lasted 22 days outside of the U.S. Capitol building. The three week fast prompted lawmakers to approach the campaigners and take note of their immigration stories. After this initial movement in Washington, D.C., “Fast for Families” was encouraged to take their program across America to further promote their message and educate more Americans about the critical need for immigration reform.
Supporters of immigration reform and campaigners for the national “Fast for Families” movement were recently in Delaware County. The small group of benefactors gathered outside U.S. Representative Pat Meehan’s office in Springfield, Pennsylvania. Their goal was to encourage Representative Meehan to vote for comprehensive immigration reform. “Fast for Families” also visited the Philadelphia suburbs of Exton, Norristown, and Villanova while in our area.
