Poor Peoples Campaign UUA Video Call April 17 & April 19

The UUA has received a groundswell response from UU clergy and lay congregational leaders who want to engage with and learn more about the Campaign and UUA & UU involvement, and particularly about the mass moral non-violent direct actions planned for Washington, DC and state capitals beginning May 14th through June 18th.

Please join Susan Leslie and her colleague Rev. Michael Crumpler, UUA LGBTQ & Intercultural Programs Manager, for a video call we’re hosting with:

  • Robin Tanner, National Multi-faith Partners Organizer for the Poor People’s Campaign (Senior Minister at Beacon Unitarian Universalist Church Summit, NJ) and
  • Beth Johnson, CA State Coordinator for the Poor People’s Campaign (Palomar UU Fellowship Vista CA).

 We’ll get updates and information on what’s coming up and what we are building toward, we’ll answer your questions, get feedback, and hear from each other about what’s happening around the country.

 You can join a call on either Tuesday, April 17th at 7 pm ET (4 pm PT) OR Thursday, April 19th at 2 pm ET (11 am PT). Zoom links and phone numbers are posted below.

A couple of updates we want to let you know about:

  • UUA Co-Moderator Elandria Williams will be representing the UUA this Tuesday, April 10th at 10 am, at the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for a Moral Revival Press Conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. to announce the release of the full report of the “Souls of Poor Folks” audit, as well as the demands of the campaign. Check the campaign’s Facebook page for Livestream of this event (we plan to share on the UUA’s Facebook page as well).
  • Saturday, April 14 is the date of the first nonviolent moral fusion direct action trainings coordinated across all 30+ states involved in the campaign. In order to participate in the actions in state capitals and in Washington, DC, you must attend a training. To receive information about the training, please use the sign-up for UUs here.
