AFL-CIO's Shuler Joins Fast for Families, Urging Congress to Pass Immigration Reform

December 3, 2013

AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Elizabeth Shuler went to the National Mall today and honored fasters who haven't eaten in 21 days, urging House Republicans to hold a vote on citizenship for the nation's 11 million aspiring Americans and to end the deportation crisis. New fasters came to take their place during a ceremony presided over by faith and religious leaders. Inspired by the fasters, Shuler also committed to fasting for a day. The AFL-CIO supports the activists participating in the Fast for Families in Washington, D.C., and the related events from Dec. 1–3.
