Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Fasting for Justice

I posted earlier about the Rolling Fast for Jubilee.  Thousands of people are participating in the fast as a way to raise awareness and pray about the situation of debt cancellation in the world. 

Crystal Espinoza, a local Bread for the World member and activist from Ft. Collins, had a letter to the editor published in her local paper - The Coloradoan about the Fast.  She writes:

The central event of the 2007 Sabbath year is the 40-day Cancel Debt Fast calling for debt cancellation and an end to global poverty.

I am participating in Cancel Debt Fast by committing to fast for a week and will contact Sen. Ken Salazar to ask for support of the Jubilee Act as well as just trade and poverty-focused development assistance to fight global poverty. During the 40-day Cancel Debt Fast, advocates across the United States and around the world will be engaging in this powerful act of solidarity with those who are bound by the chains of unjust and oppressive debts.

Way to go Crystal!
