The revival of the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is urgently and morally mandated during this time of unprecedented inequities and economic repression. This year marks both the 91st birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as well as the 50th year of his death by an assassin's bullet commissioned by a brutal system of opposition to freedom and justice for all. Rev. Dr. King was a prophet to our nation and the world. He lived and died championing the cause of justice for all and striving to bring good news of a brighter day for the poor and vulnerable people of the world. We are holding this national gathering to call on the nation to enlist in the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call For Moral Revival. We call on all people of moral conscience to join us in 40 days of direct action in over half the states to challenge extremism in state and national politics.
