Editor’s Note: More than 1,200 women from 70 organizations are fasting in 35 states for immigration reform that keeps families together and treats women fairly this month. The month of fasting will culminate April 7-9th, 2014 when 100 women will fast in DC for 48 hours.

I put up a sign next to my cube at work that said I was fasting and got a lot of support from co-workers (especially those who were also fasting themselves), and others who share our office space.

I shared a post on my Facebook page about our fasting, and there was a good response from friends there.

These seem like little anecdotes, but slowly but surely the word gets out! It helped me to know that I was one of many participating in the fast across the country. When I had breakfast this morning, I felt triumphant!
