Support Fast4Families Bus Tour 2014

Franciscan Action Network was a lead organizer in the Fast4Families tent that was set up in the shadow of the Capitol last fall. Many Franciscans participated by fasting in the tent and around the world. 

Our continuing efforts to support humane immigration reform include the Fast 4 Families Bus Tour.  The tour will visit 35 states between January 29th and April 9th – utilizing 2 bus routes and as well as individual visits to key locations for the immigration debate.

How can you and your parish or community organization support the fasters if you are along the route (see route below)?
