Fast for Families Bus Tour Across America

Last fall, immigrants and their advocates fasted in front of the US capital asking for Congressional action. Now Fast for Families is carrying their campaign to enact commonsense immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship across the country on a bus tour to the home districts of key Congressmembers. They set off in two buses from Los Angeles on Monday
Travelers Dae Joong Yoon and Rudy Lopez
Thursday the tour made a stop in San Francisco at Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi's district office.

Lopez listens to South Bay activists from the Catholic Archdiocese and SIREN.
In the evening they met with a broadly representative array of area immigrants' rights advocates at St. John the Evangelist in the Mission.

The people lay hands on the touring party.
The people gathered round the travelers to bless them on their way.

Anyone can express support for the Fast for Life by signing on to skip a meal each Wednesday during the Christian season of Lent from Ash Wednesday, March 5, through the tour's conclusion in DC on April 9.
