On June 18, 2022, The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, will hold The Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington D.C. This event will be a generationally transformative and disruptive gathering of poor and low wealth people, state leaders, faith communities, moral allies, unions, and partnering organizations. The Assembly is a culmination of organizing from fall 2021 to summer of 2022 and will spring us toward the 2022 elections.
The Western Region Poor People’s Campaign is planning three events designed to build momentum toward the Assembly and Moral March on Washington D.C. taking place June 18, 2022. Want to be part of that momentum? Come to some (or all!) of the events below!
(1) On Sunday, March 13, 3PM PT, the Western Region will gather to share what we are doing to build for June 18, to exchange mobilization strategies, get inspired, connected, and prepared for the next event. RSVP
(2) On Monday, April 4, grassroots groups around the country will host public readings of Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech, Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence. Indivisible East Bay will host one of these events – stay tuned for an RSVP link! The readings of this pivotal message will be in Spanish, American Sign Language, as well as English, and presented by families and friends, civic organizations, curbside communities, schools, unions, and others.
(3) On Monday, May 16, the Western Region Mobilizing, Organizing, Registering, Educating (M.O.R.E.) Tour stop will be in Los Angeles, CA. People will join in person, as well as online. The event will amplify the voices of directly impacted people, building power to change policy in Congress, statehouses, and courthouses.
