WEEK 5 of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. We are creating a Radical Revolution of Values by undertaking mass, nationally coordinated, civil disobedience, for six straight weeks.
12:30pm @ Rally and Direct Action launch at West Capitol steps
50 years ago, Dr. MLK Jr. started the Poor People’s Campaign to spark a radical revolution of values across the nation. The campaign was intended to turn his dream, our dream, into a reality. Black, Brown, Yellow, Red, White, folks of every color where invited to band together across differences to build a Beloved Community across the nation. Weeks before the Campaign, King was assassinated. The original movement was unable to come to fruition.
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is picking up where the movement stopped in 1968. Join us for our fourth week in a SEASON OF NONVIOLENT MORAL DIRECT ACTION. America is in a crisis of values. We must take nonviolent radical action to stand for the dignity of all people in our nation.
In the 5th week of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival we are fighting for Everybody’s Right to Live: education, living wages, and housing. In the richest nation ever to exist it is immoral for people to go cold or hungry. When 3 Americans own as much wealth as the bottom 50% of the countries population combined, we have a problem.
We can build a new American dream where everyone has a right to live a dignified life.
JOIN US MONDAY JUNE 11TH TO CONTINUE TO BUILD A MOVEMENT ACROSS THE NATION!
PLEASE NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RISK ARREST TO JOIN THIS ACTION. We need all hands on deck!
