50 years ago, members of the first Poor People’s Campaign made their voices heard. Thousands of poor people from across the United States camped out on the Washington Mall to demand that the nation “lift the load of poverty” and to sing “Everybody’s Got a Right to Live.”
Now it’s our turn. We won’t be silent anymore.
On Saturday, June 23rd at 10AM tens of thousands of us will rally at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. for the Poor People’s Campaign Call to Action Rally to make our voices heard. Together we can move this country forward.
And Durham NC is going to be there, too, joining with people from across the nation to go to Washington, DC This rally is the culmination of six weeks of nonviolent moral fusion direct action to launch a multiyear campaign that challenges systemic racism, systemic poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and our nation’s distorted moral narrative.
