The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is powerful and mobilizing thousands!

Now is the time to be doing outreach so we can change the moral narrative of our times and end the war economy, systemic racism, ecological devastation, and poverty. We need you to help lead this moral struggle and be at the forefront of our new and unsettling force for good.

We have been holding rallies and acts of nonviolent moral fusion direct action every Monday from May 14th through June 18th in 41 state Capitols.

 

The THEMES for each week were:

Week 1 - May 14Somebody is Hurting Our People and Its Gone on Far Too Long - Women, Youth, the Disabled, and Children in Poverty and the Right to Education.

Week 2 - May 21: Connecting Systemic Racism and Economic Justice - Voting Rights and Just Immigration.

Week 3 - May 28Veterans, Our War Economy, and Militarism.

Week 4 - June 4: The right to health - Ecology, Justice and Health - Water, Extreme Extraction, Climate Change, Health Care.

Week 5 - June 11: Everybody’s Got a Right to Live - Living Wages, Guaranteed Income, Housing and Social Services.

Week 6 - June 18: A New and Unsettling Force challenging Our Nation’s Distorted Moral Narrative - a Fusion Movement Rising Up.

Each of these weekly themes are interlocking, and the goal of these six weeks will be to show how all of these issues are interrelated and therefore require an intersectional, moral fusion response.


Saturday, June 23rd, there will be a national convening in Washington DC.

Please spread the good word throughout your organizations, institutions, houses of worship, and anywhere and everywhere else.
