Poor Peoples Campaign Witness and Action in Raleigh, May 14

About 500 people, including dozens of Unitarian Universalists from Raleigh, Durham, and Greensboro, participated in the Poor People’s Campaign’s first day of witness and action in Raleigh on Monday, May 14, 2018.

Almost 50 participants, including Forward Together’s Executive Director, Rev. John L. Saxon, were cited for impeding traffic by holding hands and singing on Jones Street.

Rallies, marches, and protests were also held in Washington, DC and in almost forty states across the US as the Poor People’s Campaign began 40 days of witness and action to challenge systemic racism, systemic poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation, and our country’s distorted moral values.
