Day 24 of Fast:

“I’m fasting because last night I slept on a comfortable bed, and I know that many of my sisters and brothers – including little children – had to sleep in cells or other unsafe living conditions because my government (to which I pay taxes) deems them not worthy of safe, comfortable, serene and welcoming homes – and/or not worthy of fulfilling work which provides them with safe, dependable, sufficient, life-giving income.”-

-Gwneyth Lewis, a member of Central Baptist Church of Wayne, on why she’s fasting for immigration justice
