MORAL MARCH ON WASHINGTON AND TO THE POLLS!
The Poor People’s Campaign:
A National Call for Moral Revival is uniting people across the country to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation, and the nation’s distorted morality.
“It is NOT just a day of action. It is a declaration of an ongoing, committed moral movement to 1) Shift the moral narrative; 2) Build power; and 3) Make real policies to fully address poverty and low wealth from the bottom up.”
—Bishop William J. Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis
Any nation that ignores nearly half of its citizens is in a moral, economic and political crisis. Since March 2020, while hundreds of thousands of people have died, millions are on the edge of hunger and eviction, and still without health care or living wages, billionaire wealth has grown by trillions.
National Convocation Stands with the Poor People's Campaign
On June 18, 2022 the Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls will be a generationally transformative and disruptive gathering of poor and low wealth people, state leaders, faith communities, moral allies, unions and partnering organizations. They are building power for an agenda that lifts all people by challenging the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, the war economy, and the false moral narrative of religious nationalism!
As a commitment of the larger church, we want Disciples to have a large public presence at The Poor Peoples Campaign March on Washington on June 18.
We thank you in advance for your support of this collaborative ministry for justice. We look forward to seeing you and your ministries on June 18 in Washington DC.
