Despite the Senate’s success in passing a comprehensive immigration bill, the House of Representatives has failed to even consider it. Despite the lack of legislative movement on Capitol Hill, activists’ dedicated efforts remain focused on spurring similar action in the House. Most recently, one group of activists began the “Fast for Families,” a public hunger strike on the National Mall to highlight the cost to families that Congressional inaction has. Dr. Barbara Williams-Skinner, who is participating in the Fast for Families, joins Welton this week on State of Belief. Dr. Williams-Skinner is the co-chair of the National African American Clergy Network as well as President and Co-founder of the Skinner Leadership Institute.
