Activist Group To Fast For Immigrant Rights

From Wednesday, June 2nd to Saturday June 5th, more than 50 immigrant community members, clergy, NYC Council Members and advocates will go on a 72-hour fast to demand comprehensive immigration reform in 2010.

Following the example of labor leader and immigrants rights champion Cesar Chavez, the fast will be an opportunity for prayer, reflection and strengthening the commitment to justice for immigrants.

 

Each day of the fast will highlight the contributions that immigrants have made to New York City and the United States, and illustrate the need for changes in immigration policy on both a national and local level.

 

Make the Road NY and New Sanctuary Coalition members will also be conducting a massive community education and outreach effort to engage thousands of community members in the national campaign to pass comprehensive immigration reform, the local campaign to end New York's collaboration with immigration enforcement at Rikers Island and to repudiate the signing of SB 1070 into law by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ).

 

WHEN Wednesday, June 2, 11am Thursday, June 3, 10am Friday, June 4, 5:00pm Saturday, June 5, 11am
