About the Fast

Fast to Stop Deportation!

At least one individual or organization fasted each day from March 8, 2009 to July 7, 2009, an act meant to remind us of Roxroy’s struggle to keep his family safe and together as he neared his immigration court date. As we fast, we remember our families, friends and colleagues as they face similar struggles to stay in the United States with their loved ones.

Many participants in the fast posted reflections on their experiences: those posts are viewable in the “Archive” section or the clickable calendar on the right side of this page. The rolling fast has concluded, as our efforts to raise awareness of the Salmon family and other families in similar situations continue in other forms.
