The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has announced a season of non-violent moral direct action July 12 – August 8.
Through this season of weekly Moral Monday Nonviolent Moral Direct Actions, we will continue to escalate our public pressure for change. We invite partners and all people who believe in justice and democracy to join us in this critical moment in history to save the soul and the body of this nation.
We demand that Congress:
- End the filibuster
- Pass all provisions of the For the People Act
- Fully restore the 1965 Voting Rights Act
- Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hr
Taking it to the States! Moral Mondays at Senate Offices Across the Nation

We Are the Moral Resurrection! Georgetown-to-Austin March for Democracy
The time is now for a resurrection of nonviolent moral direct action, not an insurrection of immoral violence. This is our Selma moment.
And so, from Tuesday, July 27th through Saturday, July 31st, the Poor People’s Campaign will unite our voices in Texas for a 27-mile Moral March for Democracy, starting in Georgetown, a place with a long history of resistance to racial violence, and ending in the state capitol of Austin. We welcome all who are near Austin, and who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, to join us for the rally on July 31st at 10 CT and and for everyone else to join us online at action.poorpeoplescampaign.org.
