Cory Lira: I’m an educator and cultural worker from Portland, Oregon and I am fasting for my family and my community. I am a third generation xicana and I come from a line of strong women that worked hard to ensure our family survived despite deep rooted American racism and oppression. Day labors and field workers are my cousins, my grandparents, my friends, my community. I fast to honor their contribution to our communities, I fast because immigration reform must happen now. I fast because deportation must stop and real comprehensive changes to our immigration must take place instead. I fast for the families torn apart and I fast for my future children’s right to equality and respect.
