Sungwon Hong

My name is Sungwon Hong and I am fasting in solidarity for the children who fled danger and violence in hopes of a better life. They risked their lives coming to the United States because they were more afraid of the lives they would live back home.

This isn’t about politics. It’s about showing these children compassion and it’s about ensuring the children’s safety. When I see the children being detained at the border, I see my little sister, my little brother, and every child who has ever looked up to me. I truly believe that they deserve the same opportunities as any American child and deserve to have the same bright future ahead of them.

I am participating in the “Children Over Politics” fast because I want to bring more awareness to what is happening to these children, and moreover, to invite everyone to join me in this meaningful and significant movement.
