Day 5 of 40 Day Fast for Immigration Justice:

Meet Virginia Brown, a member of Arch Street United Methodist Church. Virginia has seen firsthand the fear of deportation in Philadelphia’a West African community, and that’s why she’s fasting with New Sanctuary Movement for an end to police/ICE collaboration. 

Arch St UMC is a NSM member congregation and their members are fasting throughout this week in support of just and humane immigration reform and to end police/ICE collaboration in Philadelphia.
