PPC Open House: Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers Assembly and Moral March on Washington!

Wed May 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Calling all peace activists: sign up for the Poor Peoples Campaign June 18th national mobilization! A generationally transformative and disruptive mobilization of poor and low-wealth people, state leaders, faith communities, moral allies, unions and partnering organizations.

On March 25th, Join Massachusetts Peace Action and the Green-Rainbow Party for an open house to learn more about the campaign, share resources to mobilize for June 18, 2022, and find out how to join a working group.

Led by poor and low-wealth people, The Poor Peoples Campaign is a national grassroots movement that is continues the work of MLK Jr.

Get on a bus to Washington on June 18th! RSVP and get your seat here.

June 18 will be a fusion gathering of all of our mass movements to make ourselves visible in the streets once again to move our country to fully address the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation and the denial of health care, militarism and the war economy, and the false moral narrative of religious nationalism.

If you have been debating whether to attend, we urge you to come! Now is the time to commit! To join the march, no matter how you plan to travel to Washington, sign up on the national RSVP page. To ride one of the buses the Poor People’s Campaign has arranged then also fill out this bus sign up form.

You can learn more by attending our open house on May 25, 7 pm Eastern Time.

At the webinar, you’ll connect with others who know how wrong it is for close to 50% of people in the richest country on the planet to live in poverty or low income. Our work is to build a just and sustainable future. To do that we MUST confront and eradicate these five evils:

  1. Poverty
  2. Racism
  3. Ecological devastation
  4. Militarism and the war economy
  5. The false moral narrative of Christian nationalism

We know it is possible if we all raise our voices and work together shoulder-to-shoulder.

Join us to hear an overview of the Poor People’s Campaign and learn how you can participate. Here are some of the things you can do right away!

  1. Register for the Open House May 25th.
  2. Register for the March on Washington on June 18, 2022 here.
  3. If you cannot make it to the webinar and would like to be involved, please complete our Interest Form here.
  4. Donate. Even if you are unable to join us in Washington, you or your organization can offer much-needed support for poor and low-wage workers from Massachusetts to get on the bus.
