National Launch – Mass Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls

January 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST


Joined virtually by *poor people *low-wage workers *coordinating committees from 45 states *religious leaders *200 partner organizations *Labor unions *economists and voting rights advocates the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will announce plans for a Mass Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls— June 18, 2022.

“Why? To challenge and push to change the immoral, scandalous and continuous refusal to act and address the systemic devastation of poverty, low wages, voter suppression, denial of healthcare, climate change, the war economy, and religious nationalism that plagues 140 million poor and low-wage Americans (43% of adults and 52% of children) by the entire Republican caucus and some Democrats —all backed by a profit-driven ideology for the few.” – Bishop William J. Barber II D.Min and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, Co-chairs of the Poor Peoples Campaign

There must be a Third Reconstruction in America. We must have change from the bottom up. We must, in the nonviolent moral tradition, put a face on the pain that obstructionism is causing and shift the moral narrative, build power and place before the nation an agenda and way forward that refuses to accept the lies of scarcity and the constitutionally inconsistent, morally indefensible, politically insensitive and economically insane politics we are witnessing today.
