Fifty years and about a month after her husband’s death, Mrs. Robert Kennedy has come out of the shadows to be politically active at a critical time in this country. The 90-year-old widow of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Ethel Kennedy, is standing with the immigrant families facing President Trump’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy at the Mexican border by fasting for 24 hours in protest. Ethel Kennedy joins with 50 other members of the Kennedy family, including her daughter Kerry Kennedy, President of RFK Human Rights; and her grandson Congressman Joe Kennedy III as she pledges to donate the money she would have spent on food to charity organizations working on the grounds to protect families.
RFK Human Rights, which Ethel Kennedy founded in memory of her husband, has joined with La Unión Del Pueblo Entero, the Texas Civil Rights Project, and Neta to establish Break Bread Not Families, a 24-hour fast and prayer chain that will run for 24 days in support of the 2,400 children separated from their parents because of Trump’s hardline policies. The fast which started last Saturday will run through 24 days with different elected officials, influencers, and members of the Kennedy family taking up the mantle each day. RFK Human Rights has also called on members of the public to join them and donate the price of their food for the day to Break Bread Not Families.
As well as the Kennedy family themselves, the fast has attracted other famous faces including Alec Baldwin, Alfre Woodard, Keegan-Michael Key, and Evan Rachel Wood.
