Join us on Sunday, June 3rd for a mass meeting to kick off Week Four of 40 Days of Moral Action and hear about the vision and strategy of the campaign. This week's theme is The Right to Health and a Healthy Planet: Ecological Devastation and Health Care.

Simultaneous Spanish and ASL interpretation will be available. Child care will also be available, as needed.

At this time of intensifying political, economic, and moral crisis, with the lives of the most vulnerable and the spirits of all under vicious attack, people in growing numbers around the country are fighting back for their lives, communities, and deepest values.

Fifty years ago, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King called for a Poor People’s Campaign to begin a “revolution of values” in America. We are reigniting these efforts to unite the poor, disenfranchised, and marginalized to transform our nation’s political, economic and moral structures of our society.

Learn more about the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival by joining campaign co-chairs the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis to hear faithful reflection and public action on moral issues through storytelling, music, and interviews with local community organizers and impacted people.
