People had this story a few days ago, and the hunger strikes have been going on for a couple of weeks now, but the initiative is finally getting traction by being featured on Reddit:

The “Break Bread Not Families” initiative asks celebrities, politicians, and regular folk to fast for 24 hours to raise money for organizations doing work at the border (not ICE, obviously).

People reports that celebrities and politicians involved include Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, Evan Rachel Wood, Alfre Woodard, LeVar Burton, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Cory Booker (and his friend T-Bone), and Rep. Joe Kennedy III, whom we imagine drooling a lot during his fast.

Is it just us, or is it hard to work up a lot of sympathy for a Kennedy going without food for a day?

Martin Sheen … isn’t he the guy who lobbied members of the Electoral College to flip their votes for Hillary? Maybe this will work just as well as that effort did.

Nah, celebrities are more concerned about “their housekeepers, nannies and landscapers” and keeping them in the country working cheap.
