Eastern Massachusetts Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for a Moral Revival

December 4, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Poor People Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival

Our nation needs a moral revival.

Systemic racism. Poverty. A war economy. Ecological destruction. A distorted national morality. These enmeshed evils are tearing apart the country’s social fabric.

That’s why today, poor and disenfranchised people, clergy and moral leaders nationwide are launching the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Will you join us?

Fifty years ago today, Dr. Martin Luther King and others called for the original Poor People’s Campaign to foster a revolution of values in America. But that vision was tragically cut short.

With extremists who stand against voting rights, living wages, health care and immigration reform gaining even more influence today in Washington and in statehouses across the country, the need for a new moral movement in the U.S. is more urgent than ever.

Today the Poor People’s Campaign announced that our movement will unite tens of thousands of people across the country to engage in direct action at statehouses and the U.S. Capitol next spring – a six-week protest highlighted by one of the largest waves of civil disobedience in U.S. history.

Massachusetts Peace Action joins with the Rev. Dr. William Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, Co-Chairs of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, and asks you to step up and join our efforts.

Please add your name if you’re ready to join with  in building a movement to transform the political, economic and moral structures of the country.
