This mass Poor People’s and Low Wage Workers’ moral march to these state house assemblies is part of 40 weeks of massive voter mobilization across the United States. It’s time to take the demands of poor and low-wealth people for living wages, healthcare, housing, education, environmental justice, voting rights and an end to militarism and the war economy to the streets and directly to our state lawmakers across the country.
Under the leadership of Bishop William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, The National Poor Peoples Campaign is a fusion campaign that brings together in one movement the issues that impact all of us, especially low-income people. The PPC is rooted in a moral analysis based on our deepest religious and constitutional values that demand justice for all. Moral revival is necessary to save the heart and soul of our democracy.
