Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival
June 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Poor People’s Campaign (PPC) has launched a 40-day, 41-state effort to unite the poor and disenfranchised and to challenge the interconnected evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy and ecological devastation. We believe a moral revival is necessary to save the heart and soul of our democracy.
In the face of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation, war economy/militarism, and distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism— We must engage in mass nonviolent moral direct action. We must have mass voter registration and mobilization. And we must engage in mass power building in poor and low wealth communities declaring We Won’t Be Silent Anymore!!!!!
On Saturday, June 23 we will be headed to the US Capitol for a mass rally in Washington, D.C. for a call to action rally. The rally will begin at 10am.
Regional action in Springfield for those not going to D.C.
Join us as we show our elected leaders we will no longer allow attention violence to keep poor and disenfranchised people down.
