Fast4Families’ DJYoon is coming to Omaha Mon. Feb. 17

NE_Appleseed_Icons_Immigration-128We have a very special opportunity this Monday, Feb. 17. Dae Joong Yoon, one of the national leaders of Fast for Families, is coming to Omaha speak about the moral crisis of our outdated immigration laws.

Starting in November, he was one of the three core people who fasted (water only, no food) for more than 20 days on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., in support of fixing our immigration laws.  Their tent was visited by national leaders, including President Obama and Michelle Obama, and their effort brought attention to the urgency of immigration policy reform.

Mr. Yoon will be in Omaha Monday to speak with local faith, student, and other leaders about fasting as a way to lift up the urgent need for immigration reform in the spirit of other civil rights leaders.

Join us at one of these two events to begin planning a fast with your group or congregation!

Our families can no longer wait. Act | Fast | Pray for immigration reform.
