Mission Statement

For Fasting For Justice

Our mission is to bring to light the injustice that has plagued our communities in Northern Virginia for far too long.  Like other great leaders that have come before us, such as Mahatma Gandhi, who have used fasting to created solidarity with his people and bring to light injustice that was facing them.  Young people of the Peace Movement For All are going to dedicate their bodies, minds, and spirits in a fast that will last as long as they are physically capable of enduring to help bring to light the injustices that are facing the Immigrant Community. 

This is a fast to help support and motivate the people, particularly the youth, in Prince William County to understand and participate in the boycott that will be taking place in our community.  This is a purely peace motivated fast that will help and solidify our community.

This is a historic day, but because our people are taking control over their futures and binding together in solidarity.   For the first time in a long time, we are able to rally around Warriors for Peace in a fast that will ripple all across this great Nation. We must trust each other, fight for each other, and suffer for each other.
