More than 75 Philadelphians are fasting for local and federal immigration reform as part of the New Sanctuary Movement‘s 40 Days of Action, Fasting, and Prayer campaign. The Kensington-based interfaith immigrant rights organization launched a Tumblr to introduce the city to the campaign participants, who explain in a series of videos what immigration reform means to them.
